Are you dreaming about becoming a cabin crew, but you don’t know where to start? Or maybe you already fly, and you need to move your career forward? For the person who is not yet working for aviation, it might be hard to find out where to search for a job as a flight attendant. And for us already flying, the options sometimes are overwhelming.

Checking general job websites like Indeed or Jooble, it’s always a good idea if you search for a 9 to 5 position, but not the only one and the most effective for the future cabin crew. But there are many ways to find a flight attendant job. I gathered all of them under the one post and listed them below:

flight attendant job offers


Linkedin is a fantastic platform to find a job in aviation. There are groups, similar to Facebook, where people share offers and discuss about recruitment. It’s essential to keep your profile updated, especially if you are already experienced in flying. There are airlines and aviation recruiters who search for potential candidates via Linkedin. I sometimes get those messages with the invitation for the interview for private airlines.

CHECK ALSO: Age of the cabin crew. Am I too old/young to become a flight attendant?

If you are experienced, you can search for a job actively, find aviation agencies, and contact recruiters on Linkedin. And if you already got a job offer, you can find someone already working for the airline to answer your questions or dispel your doubts about accepting the job. Remember only to be subtle and not too spammy.

This form slowly becomes a thing of the past, but when I started looking for a job as a cabin crew, groups on Facebook were not so popular (if they existed at all). All discussions were taking place on online forums.  You can still find them as a good source of knowledge about recruitments and flight attendant job offers, especially if you are looking for something locally. These two are worth checking:

Cabin Crew Forum

Friends and friends of friends

Most of us know someone who already works as a cabin crew. If you do, it’s an excellent opportunity to ask about the overall experience or tips for the interview.  Employees usually know if the airline is going to recruit new people soon, so you can find out if new opportunities are coming.

The possibilities are endless, and the list of places where you can find flight attendant job offers is continually changing. I will be grateful if you share your sources in the comment!

Flight dispatcher job – what does he do? Requirements, courses, salary.

Flight dispatcher job – what does he do? Requirements, courses, salary.

Working in aviation does not mean only the position of the pilot or a flight attendant. There are many other options for those who are interested in working on the ground or in the air. One of the interesting opportunities, especially for those who can not fly for some reason, is working as a flight dispatcher.

What does the flight dispatcher do?

Flight dispatcher job is often confused with air traffic controller duties. However, these are two different positions.

Flight dispatcher works on the ground. It can be the airline’s airport office or a control center, located in a different place. No airline can operate without his work, no matter whether it is a commercial, private or a cargo carrier.

The flight dispatcher job involves great responsibility. Not only pilots but also the dispatcher is responsible for the security and proper conduct of the flight. His responsibilities include planning to make a smooth journey for the passengers and the crew. He works in shifts, including nights, weekends, and holidays.

Detailed responsibilities of a flight dispatcher job

  • planning the course of the flight, starting with the route and basic parameters, ending with obtaining the appropriate permits
  • analysis and evaluation of meteorological information to select a suitable route and assess potential risks
  • calculating the right amount of fuel needed to operate the flight
  • preparing the flight plan – a document containing information such as weather conditions, routes, conditions at the destination airport
  • intermediary between the cockpit crew and the other parts of the company, e.g. those responsible for hotel reservations, giving information about the flight
  • monitoring of the trip regarding weather conditions, delays or other events

How to start? Schools and courses for flight dispatchers

You can find a wide range of courses offering training for flight dispatchers on the Internet. They can be carried out by standard aviation schools, airlines, or universities that specialize in aviation. A full-time course usually lasts approx. 5 weeks.

The training covers issues related to air traffic control, radio communication, basics of the construction of the aircraft, aerodynamics, procedures in emergencies, meteorology, navigation, aviation law and practice in flight planning.

What you should consider while choosing a flight dispatcher course

  • history of school/organization
  • position in the market
  • the best schools employ full-time instructors, so it is not only their additional job, and the team has contact with the students. There is also less chance of rotating the teachers during training. You should ask instructors about their experience of working for the airlines.
  • opinions about the school and courses
  • cooperation with the airlines and the possibility of future employment
  • facilities – a place of training and help with finding discounted accommodation
  • the way of conducting classes – some of the schools carry out part of their courses online, so it saves time and money
  • price of a full course, and additional costs

Important: completion of the course is not the same as getting a license – some countries like Poland or the USA also require this document.

Cost of a flight dispatcher course

Prices vary depending on the company and region. In the US, the course price at a flight school starts at $ 5,000. Large airlines charge more, but there is a big chance to hire you after the course.

Emirates Aviation University (Official Emirates Airlines school): 12 690 $
Lufthansa: 22 500 Euro
FDS OPS (Poland): around 1500$
Sheffield School of Aeronautics (USA – Florida): 5200$
Jeppesen (Frankfurt, London): 4175$
Avtech 2000 (UK): 1458 pounds

Basic requirements

  • high resistance to stress and responsibility
  • experience in aviation (pilot, flight controller, meteorologist) or completed flight dispatcher course
  • minimum age is usually 21 (Poland) or 23 years (USA)
  • English at an advanced level
  • secondary education
  • clear criminal record
  • in some countries, the license is required

The requirements may vary depending on the employer and the place.

Major airlines usually require several years of experience at the same position, so it`s easier to start a career in smaller companies.

Flight dispatcher job – salary

Salary varies depending on place, airline or experience of the candidate.

Starting a career in Europe, you can reach approx. 45 000 Euro per year. In US minimum annual rates are around 45 000 $. An experienced dispatcher can make even $ 150 000/year. In Poland, initial earnings are at a low level. You have to consider that your salary for the first two years will not exceed 4000 zł per month (approx. 900 Euro), but experienced flight dispatcher’s salary can reach 14 000 zł.

In the Middle East you can count on similar wages as in the US, but you don’t pay taxes.

Flight attendant age limits. Am I too old or too young to start flying?

The profession of a flight attendant is usually associated with the young, looking like a model girl. Nothing could be further from the truth. Just fly several times with Lufthansa or Air France. You will find out that the average flight attendant age is above 30. So when is the best time to start working in the clouds? Are there any preferences that guide the airlines? 

What is the best age to start working as a flight attendant?

Every airline has its criteria for the flight attendant’s age, which are not always published. While the minimum is determined by aviation law, the maximum cabin crew age depends on the company’s requirements.

Europe – flight attendant age limitations

The minimum hiring age in Europe is 18 years old at the time when you apply for a job. Below are examples of some of the requirements of companies:

Ryanair: above 18

WizzAir: above 18

Air Europa: 21-35

Vueling: 18-30

Iberia: 18-30 (candidates with no experience)

Swift Air: 18-32

Volotea: 18-32

EasyJet: above 18

Aer Lingus: 21-35

Swiss Airlines: 21-35

HiFly: above 21

Norwegian: above18

Middle East – cabin crew age requirements

Minimum flight attendant age is 21 years old when you become officially employed. It means that you can apply approx. 2 months before, usually, airlines wait up to 6 months for candidates to reach the appropriate age. And let’s be realistic here – you have more chances to fly for airlines in the Middle East if you start early. Most of airlines prefer to hire crew up to around age of 33. Examples of requirements:

Oman Air: 21-30

Air Arabia:21-30

Flyadeal: 23-35

Saudia Airlines: 22-30

Flynas: above 21

Asia – flight attendant age requirements

Asian airlines have similar standards as Europe when it comes to minimum flight attendant age. However, most of them employ candidates not exceeding 30 years of age. Examples:

Air Asia: 18-28

Cathay Pacific: minimum 18

Lion Air: 18-25

Philippine Airlines: 18- 27

Korean Air: 18- 27

Private Airlines (Business Jets, VIP) – age requirements

Private airlines: The situation in private airlines is different. It is hard to determine the desired age of the cabin crew. Most business jet companies and private owners require a minimum of two years of aviation experience, so age is not so much taken into account. Some of the aircraft’s owners have their preferences. CV and skills often count more than the birth date. However, each case is different. I know people who got a job at the age of 40 and above.

Flight attendant job – age limitations. Why does it matter?

Airlines prefer to hire young candidates for a simple reason – they will stay longer in the company. Flight attendant job is not always compatible with private life. There is a bigger chance that young employees don’t plan to settle down, and their careers are more important. A flight attendant’s initial training is costly, so it is always better to keep the employee for several years.

The attractiveness of work also dictates the average age of the crew. Why Ryanair flight attendants usually do not exceed their thirties, and British Airways cabin crew is older? Because working in a low-cost airline is the least attractive, so logically after gaining some experience, the crew seeks employment with national or other carriers. Their employees often stay in the company for years. Sometimes there are also cultural factors – in the Middle East or Asia, women who got married are more likely to quit their job than European and American women.

The best option is to start applying as early as possible because the market competition is high and it does not mean that you will get a job from the first time. Some companies, especially charters, offer employment only for the summer season (e.g. Enter Air and Small Planet in Poland), so you can gain some experience during studies.

What was my age when I started working as a flight attendant? 

I started flying about a month after I got my master’s degree. I got hired by a low-cost Saudi airline called Flynas. The night I landed for the first time in Saudi Arabia was my 25th birthday. A few months later, I moved to my first private airline to fly for the Saudi Royal Family.

Remember that if you exceed a slightly maximum age, it doesn’t mean that you can not try. Airlines often treat each case individually and change the internal regulations. The reason can be a good CV or a great experience. It may be your performance at the interview or one tiny detail that decides about a positive result. If you already got the invitation for an assessment day or a job interview, recruiters already accepted your age. Half of the success is in your hands, so now it’s time to shine and show them they need to hire you!


Working as a flight attendant. Types of airlines – where and how to start?

Working as a flight attendant. Types of airlines – where and how to start?

Year by year, flying is becoming more popular. New airlines are formed and each of them offers other conditions of employment. Recruitments to work in aviation are in high demand. For some people it`s a job only for a moment, while others want to be associated with aviation for a long time. Type of airline defines general conditions which can be expected while looking for a job.

Commercial airlines

The vast majority of cabin crew begin a career in commercial airlines. Commercial airlines are those which most of us use every day by buying a ticket for the flight without renting the whole plane.

Low cost airlines

The airlines that base their strategies on the lowest ticket prices, so focus on quantity not quality. These airlines usually have only economy class and service on board is paid, which means it`s easier because you don`t have to serve each passenger. Most of low cost companies have base in a cheaper, distant from the city center airports, so accommodation costs significantly decrease. But cutting costs means also that the work day ends up with coming back to the base because the low-costs usually do not organize layovers, so sightseeing during work is almost impossible. On the other hand, these companies have extended network of flights and attractive discounts for the crew, so you can use them in your free time. In conclusion, working for low cost airline is good for beginning to gain some experience needed for recruitment in other airlines.

Advantages: relatively easy to get a job without experience, easy service, sales commissions on board, discounts on tickets for the crew

Disadvantages: lower wages, lack of layovers

Popular low-cost airlines: Ryanair, Wizz Air, easyJet, Germanwings, Norwegian, FlyNas (Saudi Arabia), FlyDubai

Charter airlines

These are companies which rent the planes for travel agencies or other airlines. Working in such airlines gives great sightseeing opportunities because often the crew remains in place with the aircraft or temporarily change the base. Usually is a job only for holiday season, which means it`s easy to gain experience even during studies but does not provide stable employment.

Advantages: long layovers

Disadvantages: seasonal work

Popular charter airlines: Enter Air (Poland), Small Planet Airlines (Lithuanian lines with the base also in Poland), Travel Service (Czech Republic), TUIfly (Germany), Thomas Cook Airlines (UK)

Flag carriers

Airlines supported or owned by the government of the country.

Stable employment gives the opportunity to stay in the company for many years, offering benefits such as maternity leave, which is not standard in aviation.

Advantages: the opportunity to work in home country, stable employment, the ability to stay with the company for years, layovers, maternity leave, increased tolerance to the age of the candidate (with experience)

Disadvantages: in most cases experince required

Examples of flag carriers: PLL LOT (Poland), Lufthansa (Germany), Alitalia (Italy), Etihad Airways (United Arab Emirates), Turkish Airlines (Turkey), Oman Air (Oman), Saudi Airlines (Saudi Arabia), Qatar Airways (Qatar)

Private airlines

The cherry on the cake of working as cabin crew. It is practically impossible to start a career as a flight attendant starting from the private sector, because of the experience required. Private airlines can have in their fleet both large and small aircrafts carrying only a few passengers.

Private owners of aircrafts employing his crew

The job requires more commitment than employment in commercial airlines. Often cabin crew employed by a private owner is engaged in the ordering of catering, organization of purchases and even booking hotels for the crew, so responsibilities are much wider. Ads of this type of work are rarely published on the Internet. Usually recruitment is carried out by specialized agencies or crew is employed from recommendation. The crew travels with the plane, so layovers can extend to months, depending on the preference of the owner.

Advantages: work less intense; long layovers; longer holidays, often based on rotaring system – eg. two months working and one month of holiday; high salary

Disadvantages: high responsibility; constant availability and lack of schedule; high requirements (age, appearance, nationality – depending on the tastes of the owner of the aircraft); required experience

Business jets, private charters

Companies specializing in the rental of luxury aircrafts for businesses and private individuals.

Advantages: layovers; longer holidays, often based on rotaring system – eg. two months working and one month of holiday; high salary

Wady: constant availability and lack of schedule; high requirements

Examples of private charters: Vista Jet, Global Jet, Alpha Star, Qatar Executive


Working for private airlines and aircraft owners for a short period of time or a single flight. Only by specialized agencies recruting crew for aviation or from recommendation.

Advantages: flexibility – you can work when you want

Disadvantages: work in an unfamiliar environment, big responsibility, insurance and medical care on your own, hard to get a job without connections, lack of permanent employment
