Become a Flight Attendant
Do you feel drawn to the life of a flight attendant? Flight attendants play an important role in air travel, working to help passengers feel comfortable and stay safe. With layovers in hundreds of cities around the world, they have the opportunity to experience sights, smells, and tastes that most of us can’t imagine.
Flight attendants are caregivers, customer service professionals, and safety providers. They ensure that passengers have a safe and calm passage while they’re on the plane. They work hard to make sure everyone's comfortable while constantly wearing a friendly smile. Their responsibilities include:
Greeting passengers as they board the plane, and thanking them as they exit.
Helping passengers get seating and stow their luggage in the overhead bins.
Giving a presentation of the airline’s safety procedures.
Facilitating beverage and food services.
Answering passengers’ questions, and calming passengers who are anxious or upset.
Guiding passengers to safety in the event of an emergency, and administering first aid if necessary.
