Recruitment is still ON. A lot of pilots with interview in Doha scheduled for April. So do not put bullshit in your head. Study and look forward, guys. AT LEAST ON THE TALENT POOL YOU ARE GONNA BE.

Yes. What as been stopped, at least for now, is the oppening for new applications. Not the ones already going on.

Might find it hard to attend interviews as they're only allowing Qatari nationals into Qatar at the moment. There's unpaid leave on the go for cabin crew and pilots except on a couple of fleets. Don't think much is going to happen for some time in the recruitment arena. These are serious times for aviation, far worse than the Gulf wars or SARS. The world is in recession, it'll pick up again no doubt but not for some time.

More and more borders are closing. Very soon the ME 3 will have no where to fly. Things are getting very ugly.

Does anyone have a320/321 a350 rosters? Can a new airbus hire get straight on to the a350? If not how long is the wait?

There's no such thing as unpaid leave for us pilots so far. They did though have used part of our paid leave for april now and possibly for the following months. (Based again entirely on fleet. Some people got it, some people didnt) We've received a roughly 40% pay cut, which will be paid back when the company is getting back on its track. In case you're leaving the company, you will be paid out in full.

They provide Villas for Captains, yes. For FO's we get apartments. Area is basically everywhere in Doha, based on availability. You can request to move though, based on availability again. You can also request to move out (to get the money), but that'll take 1-2 years possibly, depending on company requirements. For captains its 15,000 Riyal for that matter.

Greetings and stay safe!

I had to change my password. Then I could login. My previous app is gone completely, though.

It is something like a standby list. You need to wait for a date of joining. It could take 3 months or 3 years. Nobody knows.

guys it will take at least three years to call anyone for hiring ,
they have lots of pilot returning from Air italy to Qatar airways and they are already overstaffed.

Wow, that's not great to hear. There are a lot of pilots looking for a job at the moment. Hopefully the middle east will pick up soon as the rest of the world is totally rooted aviation wise.

I wouldn't be holding out for the ME either. The ME3 were feeling their over capacity well befor covid 19. Until restrictions are lifted and some solid data is analyzed it's going to be painfully slow . Growth? Not likely,but that is only a guess at this point .

Either you are a troll or you are just really really dumb⬆️. The world has shutdown and you are arguing that Emirates is hiring thousands of people right now on their thread.
