A+ A-

Flight attendant smilingIf you’ve always dreamed about becoming a cabin crew member or a flight attendant, you probably have a few questions about whether or not you fit the requirements. Even if it hasn’t been a lifelong dream, many people have questions related to a career in the aviation industry.

FAQ About Flight Attendant Careers

Below are a few of the most commonly asked questions about flight attendant careers:

  1. Do I need a passport to be a flight attendant? You will need a passport. In order to travel to and from various countries, a passport is a requirement!
  2. How old do I have to be to work as a flight attendant? The minimum age to be a flight attendant is 18 years old. In more prestigious airlines, the age limit maybe around 21 years old.
  3. Do I need a college degree to be a flight attendant? Only a high school diploma is required. However, if you want to advance further in your career (to be the manager of flight crews, etc.), a degree would definitely help.
  4. Do I need to take courses before joining an airline? This depends on the airline you’re joining. Some airlines provide training to those who don’t have any experience working as a flight attendant.
  5. Do flight attendants need to know how to swim? Flight attendants absolutely need to know how to swim. Safety requirements dictate that you need to swim at least 25 meters unassisted.
  6. How can I find work as a flight attendant? This is a simple answer – all you need to do is apply for jobs or attend recruitment events. After this, you’ll either attend an event at the airline or be assessed online.
  7. Is working as a flight attendant fun? Absolutely! You get to travel all around the world, work a flexible schedule, and make lifelong friends. You’ll be able to look out the window of an aircraft and enjoy a beautiful, breathtaking view.
