Emirates, the Dubai-based international
airline, today welcomed its first batch of Omani nationals for English
language training, as a preparatory step for joining the airline’s
multi-national team of cabin crew.The 30 male and female trainees will first undertake a three-month English
language course in Oman, and upon successful completion of the course,
proceed to join Emirates’ cabin crew training programme in Dubai.
Abdulaziz Al Ali, Emirates’ Executive Vice President Human Resources said:
“Our recruitment efforts in Oman are in line with the UAE government’s call
for private sector companies to take the lead in developing more career
opportunities for GCC nationals. Emirates is one of the world’s fastest
growing airlines, and we are always on the lookout for talented individuals
to join our team. With 94 new wide-bodied aircraft on order, we certainly
are looking to recruit and train more crew to operate these aircraft.”
Emirates’ recruitment team recently participated in a career fair and held
recruitment open days in Oman, attracting tremendous response from job
seekers. Shortlisted applicants were invited for further interviews, and
successful candidates were subsequently offered direct placement in
Emirates’ cabin crew training programme, or invited to undertake the
preparatory English language course in Oman or Dubai.
The airline aims to extend its recruitment programme to other GCC countries
in the months ahead.
Emirates’ cabin crew hail from more than 100 nationalities, including Oman,
contributing to the airline’s dynamic and international outlook. The airline
currently has over 5,600 cabin crew and expect another 1,200 more to join
