Becoming a flight attendant in the Philippines is a challenging endeavor. The industry is highly competitive, with a large number of aspiring candidates vying for limited positions. Airlines set stringent requirements, including age limits, height and weight standards, educational qualifications, language proficiency, and good health.
The selection process involves multiple stages, such as exams, interviews, group discussions, and physical assessments, where applicants must demonstrate their communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and customer service orientation. Once selected, aspiring flight attendants undergo rigorous training programs covering safety procedures, emergency protocols, in-flight service, and grooming standards.
Maintaining a professional appearance is crucial, with strict guidelines on hairstyles, makeup, uniforms, and overall grooming.
