The Indian aviation sector in the current times has seen a sudden growth. With the spread of education and changed mindset of people, more people are engaging in this sector. In the aviation sector for Asia, India stands out way brighter than the others

The cause of boom is three folds –

  • Encouraging policies made by the government.
  • The sales of the private jets are up.
  • Determining officials giving other countries a tough competition in the aviation sector.

If you are looking forward to becoming one of the cabin crew members i.e. an Air Hostess/Flight Attendant brush yourself up to face the challenges and have some fun.

It’s neither that fascinating nor that humiliating. Because every job has its pros and cons. Yes, you do get to travel a lot places in the country and foreign, meet public figures in the first class, have a glamorous life. Much more lies in the duties that you perform rather than serving food and making our makeup and hair look nice all the time.
