Etihad Airways is looking to employ hundreds of Brazilian people following the launch of its Sao Paulo to Abu Dhabi services.

Specialists from Etihad Airways' recruitment team will be in Sao Paulo on July 10 to recruit Brazilian men and women to join its ranks in Abu Dhabi as cabin crew team members.

Details of the recruitment campaign were unveiled by James Hogan, Etihad Airways' president and CEO, at a media conference in Sao Paulo.

Hogan said: "Etihad Airways is renowned as a leading global employer and we are looking for talented Brazilians to join our multinational and multicultural team.

"Etihad Airways is a world class company and we are proud to have a world class workforce and the addition of Sao Paulo means that we seek greater numbers of Brazilians to join the Etihad family. Our focus is always on our guest.

"This means we are looking for people who will proudly represent Brazil, and act as ambassadors for our brand to deliver exceptional service at all times, no matter the challenge," he added.

The recruitment day will be by invitation only. Any applicants interested in attending the day should register in advance by visiting or emailing

New cabin crew members undergo a six week training programme in Abu Dhabi.

The airline employs people from more than 125 nationalities. More than 90 Brazilian nationals currently work for Etihad Airways, including 23 pilots and 28 cabin crew.
