EMIRATES is looking for Glasgow candidates to join its cabin crew team.

The Dubai-based airline is holding a recruitment open day at a hotel in the city.

The announcement comes just weeks after the world’s largest commercial passenger aircraft began regular services between Glasgow and Dubai.

Emirates has said it is looking for both women and men to fill the positions which have been created due to the continued growth of the airline, including the recent addition of new routes on the Emirates network as well as additional aircraft.

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age at the time of joining and have an arm reach of 212cm when standing on tiptoes.

Although not mandatory, candidates are encouraged to complete an online application on the Emirates Group careers website before the open day.

Richard Jewsbury, divisional vice president UK for Emirates spoke about what the airline is looking for from interested applicants.
