Riyadh Air Has Been Flooded With Over 1 Million Job Applications Even Before Its Maiden Flight


Riyadh Air is still about a year away from its maiden flight, but people are lining up to join the company by the hundreds of thousands. The airline seems to be something along the lines of Emirates or Qatar Airways—yup, the ambition is big, and job applicants want in on the action.

According to Riyadh Air, it has received over 1 million job applications from people living in over 100 countries around the world.

Despite all those applicants, Riyadh Air’s website still had openings at the time of writing this piece. 15 of them, to be precise. You can check them out on their careers page.

Coming back to the airline, Riyadh Air made some major moves, bagging a deal for 39 Boeing Dreamliners and grabbing options for 33 more.

They’ve also secured 90 GEnx engines to power up their Boeing 787 fleet. And that’s not all—they’ve inked partnerships left, right, and centre, teaming up with Saudia, Turkish Airlines, Boeing, GE, and a whole bunch of others.
