Application process

This post provides details on becoming Thai Airways Cabin Crew.

Thinking of becoming Thai Airways Cabin Crew? You can start by looking at the careers section of their website! This is the place where they post any current listings. The listing will state whether you are able to make an application online or whether you need to send some documents to a specific location. Essentially, the listing will tell you what you need to do next and what documents are required to make your application, as this can differ from listing to listing.

Need help tailoring your CV to meet the requirements of the listing? Download my Cabin Crew CV template.

Before making an application you need to check that you got their basic requirements. For example, you must be able to swim 50 meters without stopping and must be under 26 years old (female) and be able able to swim 100 meters and be under 28 years old (male).

If Thai Airways are impressed with your application, you will be invited to an assessment day! The day will consist of a number of activities to assess your suitability for the role.

You are likely to be asked to complete a number of group activities to see how well you work in a team. You may also be asked to do a mini-presentation of yourself, so that the airline can assess how you present yourself and how effectively you can communicate.

Additionally, you will be asked to attend a number of interviews, either as a group or one-to-one. In both cases, you will be asked more specific questions about the role so that the airline can continue to assess whether they think you’d be suitable.
