Abu Dhabi’s Etihad to recruit 1,000 cabin crew as it expands operations

The international recruitment days will take place in 10 different cities

Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways plans to hire 1,000 cabin crew members as part of a major international recruitment drive, it has announced.

The airline is recruiting staff as it expands operations following a recovery from the pandemic.

The international recruitment days will take place in 10 different cities across the UAE, Middle East and Europe, including Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands, a statement said.

Applicants interested in attending the recruitment days and joining the airline’s team of cabin crew should register in advance on it’s website.

Etihad also urged employees laid off due to the pandemic to apply through the airline’s alumni programme, which is currently advertising the positions available.

Captain Jihad Matta, head of Crew Performance and Support, Etihad Airways, said: “The last 18 months have been incredibly difficult, however there is much to be positive about as travel restrictions ease and we ramp up operations to meet growing demand. A critical part of this is rebuilding our cabin crew team.”

The international cabin crew recruitment days will be held on:

· Abu Dhabi: October 11

· Cairo: October 11

· Beirut: October 17 – 18

· Casablanca: October 26

· Kiev: November 2

· Barcelona: November 2

· Athens: November 8

· Milan: November 9

· Amsterdam: November 15

· Abu Dhabi: November 15

· Alexandria: November 22

· Beirut: November 22

Successful candidates will undergo a comprehensive training programme in Abu Dhabi at Zayed Campus, the airline’s training academy.

Last month, Dubai airline Emirates also announced that it has launched a worldwide recruitment drive to hire 3,000 cabin crew and 500 airport services employees to join its Dubai hub over the next six months.

The airline said that the recruitment drive is to support its “planned ramp-up operations.”
