Emirates has said 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.

Potential candidates have been instructed to refer to the airline’s website for additional job descriptions, recruitment criteria and application process for the positions which are based in the UAE where personal income is not taxed.

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

The carrier reportedly currently flies to over 120 cities, representing 90 per cent of its pre-pandemic network, and it plans to restore 70 per cent of its capacity by the end of the year, including bringing back more of its A380 aircraft into active service.

It added that as travel restrictions have eased over the last few months, it has been recalling pilots, cabin crew and other operational employees who were stood down as a result of the pandemic last year.

Emirates Group  posted its first non-profitable year in over three decades, recording an annual loss of Dhs22.1bn ($6bn) for the financial year ending March 31, 2021, compared with a Dhs1.7bn ($456m) profit reported last year. During that period, redundancies were implemented across all parts of the business, resulting in a total workforce reduction by 31 per cent to 75,145 employees. Emirates carried 6.6 million passengers (down 88 per cent) in 2020-21, with seat capacity down by 83 per cent. The airline also reported a passenger seat factor of 44.3 per cent, compared with last year’s passenger seat factor of 78.5 per cent.
