These roles are Dubai-based positions and frontline customer-facing roles, with the airline seeking ‘friendly, energetic, and service-oriented people to meet and interact with the world as Emirates’ brand ambassadors’. For those looking to join Emirates Cabin Crew, the airline specifies a few more requirements on their website, including:

• At least 21 years of age at the time of joining
• Arm reach of 212 cm while standing on tiptoes
• Minimum height of 160 cm
• High school graduate (Grade 12)
• Fluency in English (written and spoken)
• No visible tattoos while you’re in Emirates cabin crew uniform (cosmetic and bandage coverings aren’t allowed)
• Can adapt to new people, new places, and new situations
• Physically fit for this demanding role with a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI)


Emirates has gradually restored its network operations in line with the easing of travel restrictions around the world, and over the past months, it has been recalling pilots, cabin crew, and other operational employees who were stood down when the pandemic forced a drastic reduction in flights last year.


Those interested in joining Emirates as cabin crew or as an airport services agent can find out more about the job requirements and submit their application on www.emiratesgroupcareers.com.
