Emirates Airlines to host a job fair in Houston


Emirates Airlines is hosting its inaugural recruitment day in Houston on June 26 as part of a global effort to fill some 3,700 pilot and cabin crew positions.

The job fair will begin at 9 a.m. at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston at 1300 Lamar St.

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and are required to present an updated résumé along with full-length and passport-size photographs in business attire.

The airline, which began service from Houston to Dubai in 2008, did not specify how many of the jobs would be based in Houston. Emirates plans to hire 3,000 cabin crew employees through global recruitment sessions, as well as more than 700 pilots, during the next 18 months.

In addition to Houston, Emirates services 102 cities across the globe including New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
