Emirates breaks world record in Dubai desert

Emirates Group has received an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest national diversity of participants in a yoga class in the Dubai desert. It is specified that 144 different nationalities took part in the event.

It is worth recalling that Emirates Group has more than 110 thousand employees. At the event were represented not only natives of the Middle East, but also natives of exotic countries such as Chile, Peru, Mexico, St. Kitts and Nevis, Honduras, Mongolia, Tonga and the Bahamas.

The event was held at the Al Lisaili camp. The previous record was set in 2023 in New York, on the lawn of the UN headquarters in New York, with 135 different nationalities in attendance.

In Dubai, the group included Emirates flight attendants, dnata staff, Arabian Adventures guides, dnata Travel experts and many others. The classes were led by Emirates Group employees who are qualified yoga instructors.

Participants were given eco-friendly mats made from biodegradable cork and reusable water bottles. A member of the dnata Travel Group team participated in the event as a DJ – he played meditative tunes.

Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, had earlier launched a global recruitment drive. With the arrival of new Airbus A350 aircraft, the airline plans to hire 5,000 more flight attendants.

The airline plans to hire young people, including university graduates who have completed internships and those who have worked in hospitality or customer service for at least a year.

Those entering the labour market for the first time can also apply for jobs. Emirates offers career development opportunities, travelling the world and working for one of the industry’s most iconic brands.

Successful candidates will receive training from top-notch instructors. They will also have the opportunity to visit over 140 cities in 76 countries. Eligibility requirements can be found on the Emirates Group Careers website.
