How To Become A Flight Attendant

As you may already know, working in the field of aviation is quite interesting and rewarding. The profession of Flight Attendant gives you a great opportunity to climb the aviation career ladder. Also,  it gives you a golden opportunity to interact with people from different backgrounds. Certainly, there will always be the crazy ones, but most of the people you will meet are interesting – each with their own story and destination.

But first things first, WHAT IS a Flight Attendant?

A Flight Attendant is a person who works on board an aeroplane to ensure the safety of the passengers and crew. This is their primary duty. Welcoming passengers on board and serving food are only secondary duties. For you to work as a Flight Attendant you need to be trained first. There are two ways of getting this training.


You can apply directly to any airline using your High school education. Usually, you will not pay for this training and the airline will train you from zero level and employ you as a Flight Attendant after the successful completion of your training. Whilst this is a possibility, to be honest, it is quite a difficult path. Airlines, especially, African airlines, usually prefer to employ already trained Flight Attendants. So now the question is:

Apart from getting trained by an airline, what is the other option?


You need to be trained by a school that trains Flight Attendants. This training is not free, you will be expected to pay for it. After your training, you will get a license which is what you need to be able to work in an aeroplane. You will then use that license to apply for a Flight Attendant’s job at an airline. This is the common path that most people take nowadays as it is sure to increase your chances of getting hired by an airline.

If you choose Option A  above, we have a dedicated jobs website where we daily post Flight Attendant jobs. Feel free to apply directly to an airline of your choice using the guidelines outlined on each job vacancy. You can click the button below to go straight to that website:
