Emirates has announced it is coming to Cork as it looks for people to join its multinational cabin crew team.
The Dubai-based airline is holding a cabin crew recruitment open day in Cork at 9am on Saturday, 29 June at the Cork International Hotel, Airport Business Park, Cork Airport.
Both women and men are required to fill the new positions, which have been created due to the continued growth of the airline.
Here are all the requirements to become Cabin Crew with Emirates;
There are a few qualities which will make you stand out. Namely, you’ll be positive, confident, flexible, friendly and very keen to help others. Here are the other things we look for in our candidates.
- At least 21 years of age at the time of joining
- Arm reach of 212 cm while standing on tiptoes
- Minimum height of 160 cm
- High school graduate (Grade 12)

As well as the role requirements, there’s a little more that great cabin crew members offer.
You should be determined to always perform well. And no doubt you’ll be able to manage a pretty demanding work schedule. Also, you’ll be culturally aware and reflect who we are – professional, empathetic, progressive, visionary and cosmopolitan.
These are the characteristics we look for when you meet us at an assessment day, so come prepared to demonstrate these qualities individually and in the group exercises we prepare for you.
