Etihad Airways announces plans to recruit up to 1,000 cabin crew
In the latest sign of things looking up for the travel industry, Abu Dhabi-based carrier Etihad Airways is planning to host a major recruitment drive to hire over 1,000 cabin crew members.
It will hold recruitment days in 10 different cities in countries across the Middle East and Europe, including the UAE, Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
The airline said in an online announcement on October 4, 2021 that, along with individuals who have experience in the hospitality industry, employees who were laid off during the pandemic may apply.
The announcement comes roughly one month after rival Emirates said it had plans to recruit 3,000 cabin crew and 500 airport services employees to join its Dubai hub.
“I am pleased to say Etihad is in a position to be able to start hiring cabin crew again,” Captain Jihad Matta, Head of Crew Performance and Support, said in the statement. “The last 18 months have been incredibly difficult, however there is much to be positive about as travel restrictions ease and we ramp up operations to meet growing demand.A critical part of this is rebuilding our cabin crew team.”
“We hope to attract diverse, talented men and women globally, to inspire and help them kick-start a tremendous career opportunity and life experience in the UAE,” adds Matta.
