    Hello!Lately I’ve heard some rumours about the retirement at Emirates and I’m really worried about that because i wouldn’t like to find myself with no job by the age of 50…so my question is if those rumours about the retirement by 50 are true or not.Do they really Fire you once you reach that age?I’ve Also heard that you can continue working for the company the only thing that changes is the contract which turns into a yearly renewable one…Is this being discussed atm or has anything changed since those rumours ??Hope someone can help me<!–more–>

    Hello there and many thanks for your question!

     

    The rumors that you have heard are, unfortunately, true.  Generally speaking, cabin crew approaching 50-years old have their contracts extended by one year when their current one expires.  We’ve heard of these contracts being mainly extended for the purser rank, although even then nothing is guaranteed.

     

    Contracts are then reviewed on a yearly basis.

     

    The cynical would say that’s because more mature crew with lots of years of experience cost the company more – although, we don’t know how true that is, if at all.

    Thanks a lot for your quick reply!I’ve been looking for the answer everywhere!So if I got it right the real problem would be if you’re near 50 and you’re not a purser right?whereas if you are a purser already it’s quite possible for you to continue?

    Exactly.

     

    Although, there’s really no guarantee for existing pursers either.

    Hi,

    I have seen that Emirates are holding Open Day in May across Australia.

    I am 48 years old and I am fit and healthy, not overweight etc. I am wasting my time in applying as I have read some comments on age restrictions?

    I have been successful with Virgin Australia, however I have been placed in a talent pool.

    Should I apply online or go to the open day?

     

    thanks

    Unfortunately, based on what we know, your age may well be a barrier to success in the Emirates recruitment process.  At the same time, what have you got to lose?!  I would definitely go for it – what’s the worst that can happen.  Emirates are regularly visiting cities across Australia so if there’s one being held near your home I highly recommend attending!

    Congratulations on your success with Virgin Australia!  That’s absolutely fantastic news.
