axialflow,

Thanks for the information. Hopefully the hotels are ok.
Just asked because I see that some of the flights are quite long.

What kind of travel benefits/agreement do you have at Air Arabia? Is it only myidtravel or do you have some arrangements like Flydubai where they have standby business class?

Lets get this thread going again!!!!

Time to fire up this thread again

I am a 320 Captain (7500 total time inclusive on 2000hrs command) living in Dubai, working for the dark side, due well south of Sharjah. For personal reasons/circumstances I am considering AA.

I have been invited for a DEC interview, with the intention of going on to the 6/2 contract. Up to date information is very hard to come by (I have asked AA directly but no banana), so here are my questions:
1) Basic salary considering my experience (I realise they have a salary scale according to experience)
2) Flight Pay (realise it is complicated due to the various rates paid)
3) Education Allowance (I believe it is AED40k per child). Can it be used outside of the UAE?
4) Other allowances including housing/transport/uniform (I believe the total for these is AED174k)
5) Medical insurance. Is it any good? I don't need maternity cover....
6) AND Finally working a mix of days and nights and flying, say 90 hours in a month, what is the net salary EXCLUDING the fixed allowances every month?


Oh, and any ideas as to what a DEC interview entails?

Please feel free to PM me if you don't want to disclose the information publicly.

Is there restriction in where Air Arabia pilots have to live, or you is up to you?
In another words, can you live in Dubai or RAK instead of Sharjah?

What is the current situation ? I can see them lowering terms and doing the usual "we only offer 6 months"

Air arabia is offering temporary contracts for captains,
stating that there is a high chance of it being converted into a permanent contract by the end of this year. Have they done this in the past or will I be job hunting again at the end of the 6 month stint ? Any info will be appreciated.

I donít know about the past but AA has confirmed growth plans with 3 more A320ís this year and 5 A321ís next so Captains are a high priority.

38,500 AED including housing, transport & uniform (for permanent contract)

2) Flight Pay (realise it is complicated due to the various rates paid)

yes bit complicated as there are slabs and night pay, but expect around AED 20,000 for 80 hr roster

3) Education Allowance (I believe it is AED40k per child). Can it be used outside of the UAE?

120k total for 3 kids, 40k per kid...can be used outside UAE but only 80%

4) Other allowances including housing/transport/uniform (I believe the total for these is AED174k)

correct. But I added above in basic in point # 1

5) Medical insurance. Is it any good? I don't need maternity cover....

not so good but manageable

6) AND Finally working a mix of days and nights and flying, say 90 hours in a month, what is the net salary EXCLUDING the fixed allowances every month?

net salary for 90 hours INCLUDING everything for your experience will be around 60k, increases by another 7k once u pass 3000pic on type

Oh, and any ideas as to what a DEC interview entails?

day1 written exam, psychometric test and personal interview. Day 2 sim check (40mins, basic)
