New Pilot Recruitment Changes at Emirates

Recently, on 26 April 2024, during World Pilot’s Day, Emirates shone the spotlight on its aviator roles by announcing significant changes to recruitment, including higher salaries, new roles, and a radical change to eligibility.

Non-type rated First Officers with only turboprop or jets experience can now be trained to fly the airline’s all-wide-body fleet of 144 Boeing aircraft across the network. First Officers will also be able to fly 205 of the new Boeing 777-Xs when they enter the fleet from 2025. The airline has also extended its Accelerated Command Programme to its fleet of Boeing 777s, previously reserved for its A380. This allows narrow-body aircraft pilots to graduate to wide-body on the airline’s fast-track promotion programme. The airline is now calling for Direct Entry Captains to command its fleet of 65 A350 aircraft, with an increased base salary for new recruits on both the A350s and A380s. Enhanced salary packages for First Officers with experience of over 4,000 flying hours on modern Airbus fly-by-wire or Boeing aircraft.

Emirates pilots undergo evidence- and competency-based training programmes in-house with highly skilled instructors in specially designed environments. Its cutting-edge training facility houses 10 full-flight simulators for Boeing 777s and Airbus 380s.

Last year, the airline announced an investment of US$135 million to build an advanced training facility to accommodate six Full Flight Simulator Bays (FFS) for its A350s and 777X aircraft. The brand new, 63,318 sq. ft. facility is slated to open later this year.

Pilots at Emirates receive a competitive tax-free salary, are eligible for profit share, and are provided spacious villas in gated communities, education allowance, and excellent life, medical and dental cover. They also have access to a world-class provident fund and receive regular and complimentary financial advice. Pilots enjoy chauffeur-driven transport to and from work, laundry services, 42 days annual leave and enjoy concessional cargo and discounted travel benefits for their family and friends.
