    Hi, I trust you are well?
    I am a young 22 year old female (South African) with lots of ambition.
    I have been wanting to be an air hostess since my school days, when i finished Matric i started working immediately due to the fact that both my parents lost their jobs at the time, which in turn led to me not furthering my studies. i have 5years work experience, mainly working with clients/customers. i was hoping that there was a way for me to get into air hosting as i have a great personality, single and no dependents. is there maybe a bursary or some kind of funding in order for me to pursue my career in air hosting.

    YOUR FEEDBACK WOULD BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED…

Please reply on my message cause this is my dream come true

      • AirHostess says:

        Hi Zhane, Good to know that you are interested in becoming an Air hostess. You need to complete your school. It is advisable to complete your graduation before starting work as an Air hostess so that later you are not worried about education. Another aspect to this is in case you want to change job, you have your base qualification as graduate to take another job. Right now it is good time to learn some additional language. For domestic sector flights minimum two languages are preferred and for International sector flight 3 languages are preferred.

        Good luck, AirHostess.net

      Hi,

      You need to complete the AirHostess training course. Can you check for the training institutes near or in your town? If the institute can train you without your matric qualification then one possibility is that you can apply for small airlines or people owning personal jets.

    HI, if i complete an air hostess course in my home country will it be recognised overseas?

      Yes, if you have done an air hostess course it will be recognized overseas because the airlines also understand that one person cannot keep doing the air hostess course from different different countries.

      Good luck.

    my weight is 42
    im fair & good looking
    my english is poor m frm marathi school
    its my dream to bcome an air hostess
    can u hlp me ???

    • AirHostess says:

      Hi Aarushi,

      Good to know that you are interested in becoming an Air Hostess. It appears that you are from India and for most of the Airlines in India also they need you to have good spoken English. It is easy to pickup spoken English if you have strong desire to become an Air Hostess. Since you already know a regional language Marathi, so after learning spoken English you will be having an added advantage as compared to other candidates who can only speak English and Hindi.

      Good luck.

  22. Heidi says:

    Hi,I am a 38 year old female and it has always been my dream to be an Air Hostess,but never had the opportunity to do so.Can I still make my dream come true or is there an age restriction???

    Thank you

    • AirHostess says:

      Most of the airlines prefer candidates below 28 years of age but exceptions cannot be ruled out. Some small airlines may accept your candidature if you have strong desire to do your best as young candidates do not like to join small or less popular airlines.
      Good Luck.

    hii,,, myself noopur mishra and i m persueing my b.com degree from jabalpur. i love this airhostess job, their way to handle the customers, way of talking, way of styling,, everything. but my father says that the future of air aviation world is in danger, ypu cannot become a successfull airhostess in civil aviation sector. so, what can i do to answer him, can you please help me by sending me some particular website of airhostess which have every information about airhostess future. like, best study center of airhostess study.
    your answer will be appreciable.

    • AirHostess says:

      Any job you will have ups and downs and no industry is recession proof. In fact aviation industry is growing many fold and with some restructuring from time to time. Just by saying that the industry is in danger is no reason to discard the industry. Most important to remember is that the job of an air hostess is really tough because at times you have to reach airport at 4am for your 5.30am flight. Most of the study centers are air hostess training are almost the same but the best training is provided by the airlines company because you can learn from the actual air hostess.

      Normally in the airhostesss training school languages are not taught, training is generally limited to skills required for an airhostess. It is better to learn additional languages in advance so that you fluent at the time you attend airlines interview.

      Good luck,
