Cabin Crew qualifications to look for
Cabin crew members make your airline’s flight truly memorable because they interact with your customers more than any other member of your team. They ensure the safety and comfort of your passengers while delivering excellent customer service.
Most cabin crew members will have a high school diploma or equivalent, and it’s always a bonus if your next hire is multi-lingual.
Keep an eye out for candidates who are:
- Team players
- Customer-forward thinkers
- Attentive to details
- Able to adhere to rules and regulations
- Able to work on short notice
Top tip: Diversity is key to a thriving workplace. Keep an eye out for management and exec-level candidates from varying backgrounds and aim to eliminate bias from your hiring process.
