“Working as a flight attendant has nothing in common with a boring nine to five routine. Every day keeps on bringing new experiences – one day you may have breakfast in Paris, the next – supper in Kathmandu or Melbourne. However, next to visiting a lot of exciting places and meeting interesting people, we encourage the applicants to take into consideration that it is a very responsible, safety-oriented and very demanding profession. Such conditions as the chances of Christmas with pilots and cabin crew instead of your family should also be taken into consideration“, commented Jurgita Baleviciene, an ex-senior cabin attendant and current Quality Manager and Cabin Crew Training Instructor at Baltic Aviation Academy.
To apply for Qatar Airways cabin crew position, the applicants are invited to email the CVs in English (date of birth has to be mentioned) along with the full length and passport size photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org till the 19th of October 2012. The initial assesment will be conducted on the 20th -21st of October in Vilnius, on the Baltic Aviation Academy premises (Dariaus ir Gireno st. 21). Qualities needed for initial assesment include a minimum 12 years of higher education with fluency in written and spoken English, customer service oriented personality and previous airline, customer service, nursing or hospitality experience as an advantage. Detailed information on the conditions is provided at www.balticaa.com/cabincrew.
The survey, conducted by Baltic Aviation Academy in 2011, revealed that most popular reasons for choosing the cabin crew position were: opportunity of travelling, dislike of routine and an ability to interact with interesting personalities, including famous football players or a president.
