Flydubai Reaches 1,650 Cabin Crew Milestone with Recruitment Ongoing

The future looked very uncertain for Flydubai; passenger numbers had plummeted after the tragic loss of flight FZ981 at Rostov-on-Don Airport in Russia on 19th March 2016.  All 55 passengers and 7 crew died when the Flydubai jet burst into flames after a botched aborted landing during terrible weather.

The airline has also had to contend with a significant change to its schedules as operations are increasingly moved to Dubai World Central (DWC) airport to the South of the city centre.  DWC has proved an unpopular move with passengers putting further pressure on Flydubai.

However, Flydubai is pushing ahead with an ambitious growth plan.  Despite the awful events of March 2016, the airline reported a surge in year-on-year passenger numbers of 16.5% during the first half of the year.

Flydubai has a total of 111 brand new jets on order with 8 of the state of the art 737-Max aircraft already delivered.

Flydubai Cabin Crew Represent 100 Nationalities

On 6th December, the latest batch of Flydubai cabin crew graduated from the training college at Dubai Airport Freezone, marking the 100th crew training course at the airline.  The 27 recruits join a growing crew base that now numbers 1,650.

Flydubai recruit crew from around the world, with 100 nationalities now making up the crew profile.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, the CEO of Flydubai said of the new recruits:

“Over the past eight years, flydubai has trained thousands of Cabin Crew who have applied their learnings to make flying a pleasant experience for the millions of passengers who travel with us each year. I would like to congratulate each graduate on their achievement and the highly skilled and professional trainers who have helped us reach this important milestone.”

Cabin Crew recruitment at Flydubai remains open in December 2016 with Assessment Days scheduled over the coming months.  Applications can only be submitted online on the Flydubai careers website.
