Emirates Staff Accommodation - Non Crew
 
Hi All,

I am currently looking to find out where EGHQ staff are provided company housing. Emirates are aware that I am married with one child and one on the way. I was shown around 21st Century Tower but advised that was mostly crew. I have also seen posts regarding Meydan but that there might typically be for Pilots/Cabin crew.

Can anyone advise what the current/planned locations are especially in relation to HQ staff with family. I will be Grade EK09 if that might be of use.

Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,
Meydan is not exclusive for pilots. Many departments are also placed in Meydan (Flight Operations, IT, Maintenance,...)

Don't let them place you in Bur Dubai. If they won't offer a villa, ask for the 7 Towers in DSO or Tecom.

Why not Bur Dubai? Is that an issue with the accommodation or location?

TransitCheck 15th May 2015 04:32

lots of people, lots of traffic, and hookers come to mind.

What he said ^

And to add, just not a location where a lot of expat families live.

Which is pretty important to me, at least for an initial period. Thanks!

Villa accommodation in Silicon Oasis would be your best bet I would think. Both crew and non-crew I know live there.

No problem. Housing is a big thing, your family must be happy.

Are the DSO villas spread across the area on in one place. Could you advise where?

I don't mean to burst your bubble but you'll have no chance of getting DSO. All new staff with families are being housed in Meydan Heights villas. Everyone else is slowly but surely being withdrawn from their villas elsewhere in Dubai including DSO And moved to Meydan Heights or Meydan South when it's finished.

"Including DSO" ....I doubt that.

You will be going to Meydan for sure.

A neighbor just moved in is mgt. He was told all new pilots to Meydan and now all mgt & legacy pilots from Jumeirah etc to DSO (Dubai Silicon Oasis)

Another friend moving from Jumeirah, has been here 12 years is choosising DSO as first option which was offered as he has to move.

DSO days are not yet numbered....at least in the short term.

Dont shoot the messenger, just passing it on.

DSO is an good option for family

Hi porkchopexpress, did emirates place you in a villa or flat? My husband is busy with joining formalities grade 9 in IT and HR mentioned to him grade 9 don't qualify for villas only for an apartment. We thought we would qualify for a villa. We have 2 kids.

Hallas,

You are not correct.

From the top man himself...

All pilots will be housed in Meydan, Meydan south and Al Furjan.

I ask him specifically about DSO and DSO 2. His answer was "everyone hababi".

Once your housing contract comes toward the end, you'll receive the email to move.

Even those guys living in the "government" villas who never thought they'd get the boot got booted.

Its those 3 options or take the allowance.
