Emirates Airlines

Emirates Airlines has announced its intention to bolster its cabin crew team by hiring an additional 5,000 members for its soon-to-be-operational Airbus A350 fleet in 2024.

The airline known as one of the world’s largest international carriers revealed that the recruitment drive primarily targets those entering or recently entering the workforce.

The airline is extending invitations to fresh graduates boasting internships or part-time work experience, individuals with approximately a year of hospitality or customer service background, and those eager to embark on a career that involves “travelling the globe.”

Emirates Airlines emphasized the unique benefits the new recruits would enjoy, labeling the opportunity as a chance to be part of the world’s largest international airline and receive training from some of the industry’s finest instructors.

The recruits will traverse more than 140 cities in 76 countries, gaining exposure to diverse cultures and enjoying a comprehensive range of employment benefits.

This year, the airline’s recruitment team is set to conduct open days and assessments in over 460 cities globally, showcasing the airline’s extensive network and the diverse composition of its cabin crew team.

Emirates Airlines, which had previously employed over 130 Nigerians across the Emirates group before suspending flight operations in Nigeria, encourages applications from qualified candidates of all nationalities, including Nigerians.

The recruitment initiative follows the airline’s successful hiring of 8,000 cabin crew members in 2023, bringing the total count to 21,500 by August 2023.

As Emirates prepares to welcome its anticipated A350s mid-year and Boeing 777-Xs starting in 2025, the cabin crew recruitment drive aims to align with the airline’s growth trajectory.

All successful cabin crew recruits will undergo an eight-week training program at Emirates’ facility in Dubai, emphasizing the development of effective teamwork, mental resilience under pressure, and the delivery of exceptional hospitality and service – essential qualities for ambassadors of the iconic Emirates brand.

Air Peace Flight Delayed, Passengers Stranded After Failed Promise of Hotel Stay



Passengers aboard an Air Peace flight from Abuja to Owerri found themselves in a state of disarray and frustration after a series of delays and unmet promises left them stranded without accommodations.

What was supposed to be a routine flight scheduled to depart Abuja at 4:30 PM and arrive in Owerri at 5:30 PM turned into a nightmare as the flight was delayed until 6:18 PM due to a reported lack of a pilot.

However, midway through the journey, passengers were informed that the flight couldn’t proceed to Owerri because the airport there would close by 6:40 PM.

The flight was forced to return to Abuja, where passengers endured further uncertainty as they waited for over 20 minutes to receive any communication from the airline. Eventually, they were informed of plans to provide a bus to transport them to a hotel for accommodation.

However, this promise was not fulfilled, leaving passengers stranded and scattered around the airport.

One passenger, who had already experienced delays with another airline earlier in the day, expressed frustration at the lack of accountability and protection for travelers.

The incident highlights the ongoing challenges faced by passengers in Nigeria’s domestic aviation sector and raises questions about the adequacy of regulations to safeguard passengers’ rights.

Attempts to reach Air Peace for comment on the situation were unsuccessful at the time of reporting.
