I got shortlisted for the assessment day with Air Arabia for the Cabin Crew position this week in Sharjah. Can anyone please tell me what to expect at the assessment day for Cabin Crew with Air Arabia?

Looking forward to hearing from you

Hi everyone,

I have applied with Air Arabia a few months ago as a NTR FO.

My last company phased out the fleet i was hired to fly, so i am urgently looking for another flying job.

I hold and ATPL from the GCAA and Canada. Also have +3200TT +1500 jet and TR on the B732and A300B4.

I will be willing to pay my own TR.

Kindly if you have any hints or heads up in how to get my resume to the HRdepartment please let me know.

Thanking your kindness

I tried to phone Air Arabia HQ number 971-6-5088888 for the past one hour (UAE time 1400 till 1500) and to my surprise no answer on any department extension!! Operator, HR, Marketing, Corporate etc!

Are they on leave or has the duty finished?

Have Air Arabia taken stake in Bhoja Air of Pakistan? the grounded airline will resume operations due to this from mid August.

Eastern Skyjets were also interested but pulled out of talks.

I don't understand your post. You are asking a question but then answering it?
So have Air Arabia taken a stake in Bhoja air?

It would make no sense at all for AA to become associated with Bhoja air, let alone invest in it. However prune is all about rumours. Where did you hear this from?

Whether it makes sense or not, it is true.

OK thats clearer now. I think we can add them to the long line of desperate airlines that coming knocking in the gulf. I wouldn't hold your breath on the chances of a tie up anytime soon.

I like the way some people take things so personally, whats your issue with Arab carriers taking stake in others and others coming to them for help?

No one is taking anything personally,I am just asking that you guys use some common sense. How many airlines do you think these guys have spoken to to an attempt to rescue their business. If you treat every contact as a certainty, and then publish it as such here, you will be sadly disappointed 99%of the time.
The Gulf airlines are seen as having money to burn and there is a steady stream of non Gulf operators who come calling. Lets revisit it in a months time and see if the deal has been done and annouced. I will be the first to apologise if you are right.

Ready entry

Hey Folks, I've just finished my education. MEP (L) CPL IR .. I have no experiences on Jet aircrafts but i would be ready to Pay for type rating. So my question is, whether it makes sense to apply for a Job as Pilot @ Air Arabia or not?! I read that Air arabia is looking for pilots with experience ,that means with at least 1500 hours
It would be nice to get a Job there. I was born and raised in germany and i'm still living in germany. But my parents are originally from morocco. So it would be a dream of mine to go back to my roots.
I guess I am gonna try to apply for a Job at Royal Air maroc ,too. Buuuut, i think it would be very hard behause i read that they prefer their own "ready entries".

Talks between Air Arabia and Bhoja were held in Sharjah two weeks ago I guess they failed as the latter are now terminating services of all staff except upper management.

Anyone in here with recent information regarding the reqruitment process for FOs?

Is the information provided by latestpilotjobs.com accurate?

How is it working for Air Arabia? Roasters, morale among crew etc.

Would like to hear from you who work there.
PM me if you want to!

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately Air Arabia reduced the salary and conditions for direct entry f/o.
New contracts are only 6months temporary and not sure about permanet after that.
There are hundreds of second officers in waiting list for the next few years to come.
Apart from that it's a lovely environment, 100% friendly. Just very hard work with our roster (100hr always).
Best of wishes.
