Want to be a flight attendant for Emirates Airline, the Dubai-based luxury carrier?

Now is your chance.

The airline will recruit crew on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Torrance Marrriot South Bay just south of Los Angeles International Airport. It starts at 9 a.m. You’ll be speaking to the company’s recruitment team. You should also register online at www.emirates.com/careers.

If you get the job, it looks like you have to move to what the airline calls, “cosmopolitan Dubai.” It is, according to the airline, “a thriving metropolis” with an “exceptional lifestyle” and year-round sun. The airline has an entire section of its website devoted to what it’s like to live in Dubai. 

Emirates, perhaps best known for its fancy first class suits, serves 134 cities worldwide and has 201 wide-body aircraft. Thirty-five of those planes are A380s, and the airline plans to add A380 service soon to Los Angeles. For now, it uses a Boeing 777.

Company officials say Emirates is planning to hire about 3,800 new flight attendants this year. Already, officials say, it has 16,000 flight attendants from more than 120 countries.

Here are the requirements,  per the website:

• At least 21 years of age at the time of joining
• Arm reach of 212 cm while standing on tiptoes
• High school graduate (Grade 12)
• Fluency in English (Written and Spoken)
• No visible tattoos while in Emirates Cabin Crew uniform (cosmetic and bandage coverings not permitted)
• Physically fit to meet the Emirates Cabin Crew requirements
