When you meet all of those requirements, you can now undergo training specifically for flight attendants. If you pass the training, then your chances of getting hired will increase. But before that, you need to have these qualities to succeed in the training:

  • Professionalism
  • Safety consciousness
  • Adaptability and flexibility to lifestyle change
  • Customer service skills
  • Assertiveness
  • Energy
  • Ability to multitask
  • Ability to connect with people
