Are you thinking of becoming Air Asia Cabin Crew? This post will provide you with details of becoming Air Asia Cabin Crew – from the application process to working life.

Becoming Air Asia Cabin Crew

Application process

If you’re thinking of becoming Air Asia Cabin Crew, you can visit their career website where their jobs are advertised. Here you can search for job openings and make an application, or attend a walk-in interview.

The first step in the interview process is a height check. Female Cabin Crew are required to be between 157 cm and 170 cm in height. If you don’t fall into this bracket then you will be rejected on the spot.

They will then conduct a document check, to make sure you have all the documents they asked you to bring and to make sure you fit the criteria for the job. You will be required to bring along the application form, higher education certificate, CV and 2 photos – a face and full body one.

After your documents have been checked you will then be called up to perform a catwalk towards the recruiters. You will also be checked for any visible tattoos. After these, you will be asked to give a self-introduction. Here you will need to talk about yourself while you’re observed on how you conduct and present yourself. You will then be told whether you have passed or failed this part of the interview process.

If you have passed you’ll be asked to complete an English test. After this, you will be split into groups and asked to perform a group activity, which is designed to assess how you work in a group situation. 

Finally, the remaining successful candidates will be asked to attend a final interview. 


Once you’ve secured the job, you’ll begin a 2-month training programme. The initial weeks of training will involve an introduction, such as the background to the airline and your employment benefits. You also have grooming classes where the airline show you how you need to look to fit the image of the airline. 

The following weeks of training will then cover first aid and safety emergency procedures. As part of this training, you will be required to complete tests nearly every day. 

Do you want to know more about what Cabin Crew training could involve? Take a look at my post ‘What Does Cabin Crew Training Consist of?’ or take a look at my becoming Cabin Crew e-book.

Working life

As discussed in my post ‘What hours will I work as Cabin Crew’, your roster will differ each month. Your roster will normally include 4/5 days on and 2 days off. 

As Air Asia Cabin Crew you will fly to a number of destinations across the world, including places like Bali and Sydney. 


Your salary will be made up of your basic salary, flying hours and some money for your performance and incentive.

Air Asia provide their Cabin Crew with a number of benefits. These include a performance bonus, loyalty service award and food, and drink subsidies. 


Since Air Asia is a low-cost airline, they do not provide accommodation for their Cabin Crew. You are expected to provide your own accommodation and make your way to the airport.
