NOTICE to all potential Emirates Airlines Cabin Crew applicants. If you are dynamic and as passionate about being the best as Emirates (the company) are and inspire to be, and you are innovative and tireless in seeking to exceed customers’ expectations, then read on for a great opportunity...
It’s amazing that Emirates, the airline, was born as the official international airline of the United Arab Emirates only just over 20 years ago! Wholly owned by the Government of Dubai, It progresses as a fast-growing and ‘par excellence’ airline with more than 400 international awards for excellence to its credit.
It was with just two aircraft, a leased Boeing 737 and an Airbus 300 B4 that Emirates Airlines started flights out of Dubai back in October 1985. It is now a recognized brand around the world due in a big part to its professionalism and commitment to industry highest possible standards of quality and service in every aspect of the company business.
The Emirates goal has always been quality, not quantity, and growth does not happen until quality is becomes a fixture. Incidentally, growth has still come at a phenomenal pace.
Obviously every airline has competition and Emirates Airlines has faced that competition through Dubai’s open-skies policy with aplomb and at a scale that is quite remarkable. With growth to date at or above 20% annually, the airline has recorded an annual profit in every year since 1988 just 3 years after flights commenced.
Emirates believes that their extraordinary growth is due many things, however their driving force is an absolutely world-class workforce.
The airline’s business also includes:
• An award winning international cargo division
• A full-fledged destination management and leisure division
• An international ground-handler division
• An airline IT developer
Emirates Airlines currently fly to over 100 destinations in some 60 countries around the world and operate a fleet of approximately 140 aircraft. That equates to nearly 100 Emirates flights departing Dubai each day headed for an airport somewhere on six of the worlds continents.
The airlines commitment to growth with subsequent job opportunities that come with that is astonishing. In 2001 the airline announced the largest order in aviation history, valued at US$15 billion. This in layman’s terms equates to a mix of 58 brand new Airbus and Boeing aircraft are to join the rapidly expanding fleet.
Then again In 2005, the airline again announced a massive aircraft order. In fact it was the largest-ever order for the Boeing 777 family of aircraft. Again in layman’s terms this Dhs 35.7 billion (US$9.7 billion) deal meant another 42 magnificent state-of-the-art aircraft were to join the fleet!
Let the Growth Continue
At the 2006 Farnborough Air Show, Emirates Airlines signed a Heads of Agreement for 10 of Boeing’s new 747-8F aircraft. For the techo’s amongst us these aircraft will be powered by General Electric’s GEnx jet engines. This alone is a deal worth US$3.3 billion.
But wait there’s more
At the Dubai Airshow in November 2007, Emirates announced yet another cracker order when it signed contracts for more aircraft to match its growth goals.
This time it was for 120 Airbus A350s, 11 A380s, and 12 Boeing 777-300ERs, worth an estimated US$34.9 billion in list prices.
Emirates started taking delivery of 50 A350-900s and 20 A350-1000s, in 2014. It also had at that time options for 50 A350-900s in total.
As of 1 September 2016, Emirates is the largest operator of the A380, with 94 of this type in its fleet. Furthermore, the airline has 48 more A380s on order, which, when delivered, would increase the number of A380s in service to 142.
It's Boeing 777 aircraft now tallies 160 and out of the 234 aircraft worth over USD 112 billion that Emirates has in its order book, 150 will be the new Boeing 777X aircraft that will be delivered starting 2020.
The aircraft will feature a range of passenger focused amenities on board including larger windows, higher ceiling, and a wider cabin in addition to being more fuel efficient than older aircraft.
Without question, Emirates’ currently operate one of the youngest and therefore most modern fleets in the world in-line with its commitment to develop Dubai into a global, long-haul aviation hub. In passenger numbers since January 2016, the airline has carried over 51.3 million passengers, which represented 9% more passengers during the same period in the previous calendar year.
