As the aviation sector opens up, Dubai's flagship carrier Emirates and budget airline flydubai are hiring for a number of vacancies in the UAE.

Emirates announced in October that it plans to recruit more than 6,000 staff over the next six months, including pilots, cabin crew, engineering specialists and ground staff to support the airline's growth.

Aviation analysts say that airlines will ramp up hiring activity in the coming months following massive layoffs in 2020 due to the major blow from the lockdowns after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
