With a boom in the aviation sector. Jobs for the Air Hostess/ Flight Attendants/ cabin crew member have certainly been multiplied. Plus, with people changing their mindset, it’s no more considered a ‘WAITER’ job.

Foremost the duty of the air hostess is to take safety and assistance of the people on board. Next, comes the comfort of the passengers. Some flights don’t offer beverages or food during the journey, that doesn’t mean there is no job for the flight attendants. They still need to present there for the safety of the passengers.

To be an Air Hostess you have to be best in hospitality and public service, always booming with a positive attitude and a smiling face no matter what is the situation. Physically strong is the main demand because you sometimes have to give shifts for more than 10-12 hours, which sometimes feels better than 9-5 working hours. With great presence of mind and adjusting and a leadership quality, your job is smoothly handled and you put full focus on especially your job.

During the training:

After a rigorous number of exams and interviews, when you finally get selected. It feels like heaven because it may seem easy but not everybody’s cup of tea.There’s a training course for 4-6 weeks generally regulated by The Civil Aviation Authority.

Things you are taught while the training-




  • Endurance
  • Issues related to the security of the flight and the passengers.
  • Passengers well-being
  • Decompression
  • Evacuation of the Aircraft in state of emergency
  • Situations in which aircraft land in water or there’s a fire in the engines or any part of the aircraft.
  • Medical Requirements.

Given these training sessions, can be too expensive for the Aviation Authority. Applicants selected as a member of the cabin crew are only given these training or there are other training courses for airlines which also help you to gain the required knowledge and the experience. Selected members of the cabin crew are tested on their performance by the other senior members of the cabin crew for a period of 3-6 months. Also, every 12 months every flight attendant has to undergo perennial training and are tested again, for the best performance.
