When flying for Emirates, you will be based in the heart of Dubai and will start your career onboard one of the world’s most modern fleets, on the industry-leading Boeing 777 or the flagship Airbus A380.  We’re encouraging pilots to come along for a chat with our recruitment team in Dublin and we’d be delighted to answer any questions. Partners and children are also very welcome as we completely understand a move to Dubai is something that involves the whole family."

Unlike previous delivery milestones the 500th 737-800 was a low key event with no press release issued by either Boeing or Ryanair. In a tweet Doug Alder Communications Manager Boeing 737 Program said "A huge congrats to our great airline customer & partner @Ryanair for taking delivery of their 500th 737! Amazing accomplishment. You help fuel our Renton production line each and every day!".

The Dublin based carrier is the largest 737-800 global customer and the largest Boeing operator in Europe and is on average taking delivery of 25 aircraft of the type per year since 1999.
