Emirates entices pilots with improved benefits, higher salaries and better perks

A competitive tax-free salary, spacious villas in gated communities, education allowance for children, and medical cover. 

These are just some of the “significant and exciting” changes that Emirates is making to its pilot recruitment program.

The Dubai-based airline announced the launch of a global drive to recruit pilots across its First Officers, Direct Entry Captains, and Accelerated Command Programmes:

We’ve unveiled exciting updates to our pilot recruitment process. Learn more about the new packages, roles, and eligibility criteria!

First Officers – non-type rated

Emirates is welcoming non-type-rated First Officers. These pilots will now have the opportunity to be fully trained to fly the airline’s all-wide-body fleet of 144 Boeing aircraft across its network. 

Accelerated Command Programme for Boeing 777s

Emirates has now extended its Accelerated Command Programme (ACP) to its fleet of Boeing 777s – which so far was reserved for its signature A380 aircraft. This is an opportunity for captains flying narrow-body aircraft to graduate to wide-body on Emirates’ fast track promotion program.

Direct Entry Captain – A350 fleet

The airline is now calling for Direct Entry Captains (DEC) to command its anticipated A350 fleet of 65 aircraft. As an added incentive, Emirates has also increased the base salary for the new recruits on both the A350s and A380s. Deliveries of the A350s will start mid-year and serve both new and existing destinations. The airline continues to welcome DECs for its fleet of A380s.

First Officers 

Emirates is offering enhanced salary packages for First Officers with experience of over 4,000 flying hours on modern fly-by-wire Airbus or Boeing aircraft.
