Top 3 FAQ's

  • What is involved in the training? Where does it take place?

    All Cabin Crew recruits go through an initial five-week training course in Dubai, conducted in English at a purpose-built crew training centre that is part of the Emirates Aviation College. Training includes the practical and theoretical aspects of safety, first aid and inflight service on the various aircraft operated by Emirates. The trainees on each course are normally a rich cultural mix. There are regular assessments with stringent pass marks for each module. Hence a high standard of performance and dedication is required.

  • Do you get paid/compensated and are you provided with company accommodation while training?

    Your basic salary is calculated from the first day of joining. Company accommodation is also provided upon your arrival in Dubai.

  • Are you allocated flights as soon as you join training?

    You are given a roster on the day of your graduation at the end of your training. Initially, you will fly as supernumerary so that your performance can be observed and feedback obtained in order to identify any further training needs prior to your first operational flight.
