You will usually need to have a good standard of basic maths and English. But entry requirements can vary between airlines, so you should check with them directly.
Air cabin crew members need to have a polite but firm approach when dealing with difficult customers. Excellent ‘people’ skills are really important, as is the ability to work as part of a team.
Pragati has been Flying as a Cabin Crew with Air Deccan and Kingfisher Airlines Ltd. She flew for approximately 6 years when she decided to give a turn to her career and stop Flying. Having completed her studies till the post graduation level with Flying, she restarted her career using her skills and experience as an Aviation blogger. Now she even wishes to share her experience and render advice to those who wish to fly!!! Since Flying is just not about glamour and money, our youngster’s need to be entirely aware what they are getting into as going on a Flight may be rejuvenating for some and tiring or boring for some. Hence it’s one of her attempts to guide emerging aspirants and simultaneously render back to the Aviation industry in a small way.
