Emirates is bringing back ’70-100′ furloughed pilots every month, says Chief Operating Officer and is constrained by training capacity

07th Jul 2021
  • Emirates airline is bringing back pilots who were sent on unpaid leave last year after the COVID-19 crisis led to the grounding of the airline’s flights.
  • The carrier is bringing back “70 to 100” pilots a month to operate the A30 jumbo-jets, which are being deployed by Emirates on its busiest routes.
  • When it comes to the 777s, “we have almost everybody back there,” said Al Redha, adding that the airline will bring in more pilots to operate its A380s.
  • “We are constrained with the number of trainees or the number of training sessions we can do on our simulator,” said Al Redha.
  • Summer boost; Emirates is seeing seat factors of 70 per cent across all of its routes – this goes up to a 100 per cent on some routes, according to Al Redha.
