Éabha Sloyan of Kilkenny, Emirates Cabin Crew and a NUIG graduate, labels her year and a half in Dubai as transformative. Part of the 200 Irish recruits, she celebrates her ‘dream job’ that has taken her to destinations like Bali, Rio, and Tokyo. Éabha enjoys her monthly roster surprises and the company’s bidding system that fulfils her travel desires. Recently, she represented Emirates at a Lions vs. Stormers game in Johannesburg as part of the business promotion team. Inspired by Éabha’s experiences, her sister Doireann is currently training with Emirates in Dubai.

“Working as cabin crew for Emirates has been a rewarding career and I’ve learned valuable social and life skills. On arrival in Dubai, I lived in employee accommodation with other cabin crew similar to my age who I now consider my friends. All cabin crew receive a tax-free salary and 30 calendar leave days per year. Besides complimentary annual leave flight tickets, all cabin crew enjoy deeply discounted flight tickets for themselves, self, dependents and wider family and friends, so that you can travel, explore and experience new cultures and the world together.
