This post provides details on becoming Thomas Cook Cabin Crew

Application Process

You can apply for a job as Thomas Cook Cabin Crew on their Careers website. This website allows you to search for job openings, and register your interest for future roles. Once you have created an account on the website, you can start to fill in your candidate profile. Here you will need to upload a CV and fill in your personal details.

If you need help tailoring your resume to the needs of the airline, I have a Cabin Crew CV Template and a 1:1 Cabin Crew tuition and guidance to help you out. 

If your application is then successful you will be invited to attend an interview. The next round is an assessment day, which will involve a range of different group tasks to demonstrate your team work and will finish with a final interview. 

Becoming Thomas Cook Cabin Crew


If successful you will undertake a 4-5 week initial training course, which is designed to provide you with all the skills and knowledge required for the job. This is usually held at your home base and you will also be paid during this training period! The training period will be intense and will involve homework, studying and exams in all subjects – but will be worth it in the end!

When you have passed this initial training, you will fly as an ‘extra’ member of crew first. You will be required to assist the other members on board and gain experience working for Thomas Cook before you become a full Cabin Crew member.

If you’re worried about training or want more information, I have Cabin Crew training covered in my Becoming Cabin Crew e-book!

Working life

Thomas Cook have flights departing 7 days a week at all times of day. Therefore, the times you fly could differ massively – from flying at 3 am one day to 11 pm the next.


Thomas Cook Cabin Crew typically earn £13,750 a year. You will also earn sales commission on all goods sold on board on top of this, and get an hourly flying allowance.


There is no need for accommodation when working for Thomas Cook, as you will be based at a UK airport and will be expected to provide your own accommodation.
