Emirates plans to hire pilots from other airlines

Published on : Wednesday, January 27, 2016

emiratesEmirates has rolled out plans to hire interested Malaysia Airlines Bhd’s pilots.

“There are plans to take up new pilots including those from Malaysia Airlines but there are still no details such as number of Malaysia Airlines’ pilots or when it will take place,” Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, Revenue Optimisation and Aeropolitical Affairs, based in Dubai, said.

While speaking to reporters at Emirates’ media briefing in Sepang on Tuesday, he said, “Emirates’ plans to hire pilots from other airlines had been ongoing.”

Malaysia Airlines and Emirates had in December last year inked a codeshare agreement as part of the national carrier’s route rationalisation programme.

The rationalisation exercise will see Malaysia Airlines axing some routes including to Frankfurt, Istanbul and Brisbane.

Malaysia Airlines had reportedly said its network rationalisation exercise would have an impact on its pilots but they have been offered options, which did not include termination.
It reportedly said these pilots would have a choice of career options which include voluntary secondment to other airlines in Asia or West Asia, voluntary no pay long-term leave to pursue other careers, or to remain in Malaysia Airlines and await possible long-term vacancies in other aircraft types.
