The finest service in the sky
People love to travel for leisure, others love the adventure and new experiences and many travel for business. Yet for cabin crew members, travelling is a career, where they spend much of their working lives at 40,000 feet.
Although travellers appreciate that it is a demanding career for these people to remain so helpful and with a smile for hours, there is another positive side of a cabin crew career.
Emirates, the Dubai-based international carrier, is a fast growing and friendly airline with more than 400 international awards to show for its ongoing commitment. The airline strives to constantly develop its business internationally with the highest standards of quality and service. Recruiting the right persons and training them to be the best staff is therefore a very important aspect.
Emirates boasts an international team of over 14,000 flight attendants, representing countries from six continents, including Malta. There are over 100 Maltese employed as Emirates Cabin Crew who are based in Dubai. Some Maltese join Emirates because they want to develop a career with an international company and gain experience abroad. Others are attracted by the appeal of travel and adventure.
All Emirates Cabin Crew love to wow passengers with their product and service. As an airline, Emirates has been constantly at the cutting edge where technology is concerned. On being recruited, they undergo training for over seven weeks in a dedicated state-of-the-art Cabin Crew training facility at the Emirates Aviation College. The practical side of the training takes place in full motion simulators of the aircraft types in the Emirates fleet. This ensures the most realistic learning conditions, giving new recruits the experience to deliver the highest standards of safety and service in the sky as part of the Emirates Cabin Crew team.
Emirates offers lots of career opportunities. Based on the exceptional performance and motivation, and the operational needs of the airline, Emirates Cabin Crew can progress from the Economy class cabin through to the premium cabins, and beyond, to a leadership role on the aircraft.
Dedicated high-performing cabin crew have been able to achieve the coveted Purser position within a relatively short time period. Nowadays, many Emirates Cabin Crew have a range of skills, qualifications and experience that may be utilised and valued in other professions. Yet they have opted for Emirates.
With a range of Emirates job vacancies advertised within the Emirates Group, one has the chance to progress in a variety of directions. Many former Emirates Cabin Crew, including Maltese, are now working in Training and Development roles, Human Resources and Management.
While not on duty, Emirates Cabin Crew are all based in Dubai where they can enjoy the modern cosmopolitan city. Dubai offers an exceptional lifestyle and a vast range of leisure attractions, in addition to sunny weather all year long.
No doubt, seeing the world and meeting different nationalities and cultures is one of the great attractions for Emirates Cabin Crew. They quickly make new friends and easily feel the huge Emirates support system throughout. For many cabin crew members, Dubai becomes their home and Emirates their family. They become proud to be part of a prestigious international and constantly evolving brand, Emirates.
The Emirates Group is a highly profitable business with over 50,000 employees. The Group comprises of dnata, the successful Airport Ground Services and Travel Industry division, and Emirates, the Group’s rapidly expanding and award winning international airline. Emirates global network reaches over 123 destinations across six continents, operating a modern fleet of over 171 wide-bodied aircraft.
