There are a lot of people who want to be a flight attendant and steward in the future but getting inside the airline has been a great challenge for them. Airline standards are indeed high and indeed, one has to really be the cream of the crop to be one, the best of the best. It is not easy to become a cabin crew, and we do want to help our future generation of flight attendants and stewards.
At the same time, the Asia-Pacific region will need 327,000 cabin crew by 2035 out of the 900,000+ needed worldwide. As the demand for air travel increases, more cabin crew will be needed.
In the Philippines, we also noticed that out of the thousands who apply, less than 10% make it in. We have always believed that it is normal for airlines to have high standards for cabin crew, anyway, the responsibility that goes with wearing the uniform is huge too. Is it impossible to reach? Definitely not! With help, we know more of our cabin crew aspirants will be able to turn their flight attendant dream into a reality.
Lately, a group has been meeting with one mission, to help our future flight attendants. These are:
We expect that by 2020, more airlines will be staging open days and hirings. The group is then planning a symposium or seminar with the goal to inspire, advice, motivate, and teach all who desire to become a cabin crew in the future!
So to all our future flight attendants, please do stay posted on the schedule of this activity which will really help you out on your journey to be a cabin crew. It is rare to have all five join forces with the common goal of seeing you one day earn your wings.
