Cabin Crew's General Requirements

Posted in Cabin Crew Articles9 comments

The minimum age requirement is 18 years of age.
Some airlines will require you to be 19, 20 or 21. The maximum age is 54, however there are a few airlines that have a younger maximum age limit than this.
What is the minimum education I need?
Most airlines require you to have at least 4 GCSE’s grade c or above (or equivalent) with two of them in English and Math’s. We would point out that if you have do not have theses grades. but have a higher education then this will help your application. Some airlines also accept that not everyone excels in school and therefore will overlook qualifications if they have gained excellent customer service experience.
Good health is essential and if you are successful in the selection process, you may be required to undergo a medical examination.
Most airlines require you to be no shorter than 5ft 2in and no taller than 6ft 3in. This applies to both men and women. This is for safety, as you will be required to reach equipment that is carried on board the aircraft. Airlines that operate smaller aircrafts are able to recruit people from 4ft 9”
Your weight must be in proportion to your height. First Aid This is not a requirement, however if you have the relevant experience it would help with your application.
You must be able to swim
Successful applicants will be required to demonstrate their ability to swim at least 25 metres, with some airlines its 30 metres.
Second Language
A second language is an advantage, however not essential to most airlines. We do however recommend having a second language, as this will help your application.
Customer service Experience
Customers are the highest priority, therefore airlines seek to recruit cabin crew who have enjoyed working and have excelled in customer contact positions. Also working with special needs, such as the elderly, children and infants and people with physical disabilities would be an advantage.
Service industry Experience
As the position is one of service to the public, it is important for all applicants to have had part-time or fulltime experience in the service industry. This could be working in a restaurant, a hotel, in catering or other positions that involve a strong customer service focus.
When successful with your application you must be entitled to live and work indefinitely in the UK and hold a valid EU or UK passport, which permits worldwide travel without restrictions.
Good Eyesight
Once successful you will undergo a eye test. If you do not have perfect eyesight then glasses or contact lenses can be worn with most airlines.
