Desire to get a particular job -raises a Question -
If you answer this question, it will give solution to your problem.
Why do you want to Join INDIGO?
If you can answer this…your work is done…!!
For whatever good reason that you have , to join Indigo, it must be strong enough to make you do research about the Airline’s requirements, Its pre requisites and what should be your preparation to be with the carrier at the earliest!
So, start reading information about it on their website and all other sources of information that can help you know what’s latest with the airline and start preparing for the Cabin Crew Interview. When you appear for the interview well prepared, with full confidence, positive attitude and knowledge about what you are going to achieve…You will be welcomed to the airline with Open arms.
I would like to share an episode of Special Persona’s learning gallery where a similar question was asked by one of the candidates…
and my answer to the candidate was that -If a boy is interested in a girl , he would like to first know about much as he can and then for sure find a way out to impress her!!
I am sure this does explain what you can do best to be on Board Indigo flight as a cabin crew.
Know it so that you don’t get to hear - ‘NO’ to it!

Oh Boy! It is not a child’s play to become a Crew…neither for girls nor for boys.
Yes, it is definitely a fact that females have an upper hand when it comes to shortlisting candidates for cabin crew job.
This is for the simple reason that Airlines are not gender Bias on Board!!
A crew means crew, be it a male or a female…all have to be same…behave in the same manner, have the same set of qualities and get paid same!!
To be a cabin crew you must be have commando guts , magnetic looks and heart of Mother Teresa!!
when it comes to being so compassionate, caring, pleasant, loving and extremely strong from within to switch roles when a situation demands…females generally win!!
We have all these qualities in men too, but not as common as in females!!
If you have it in you…if you are one of those special men who have that walloping personality that the airlines are looking for, go ahead…you will be recruited.
Just carry a personality that reflects the TRUE YOU in front of the recruitment Panel.
All the very best!

I know some Cabin Crew who have done B tech, some are CPL holders, qualified nurses and many are graduates and post graduates from different streams.
Crew members don’t stop growing..they keep getting educated, keep upgrading their skills and knowledge.
Some join as cabin crew after graduating or post graduating too! CPL holders, who are struggling to get recruited as pilots ,also work as cabin crew..this keeps them close to the aircrafts!
The job of a cabin crew requires Skills Attitude and Knowledge (SKA)that is not technical in nature(at least not at the time of recruitment) , but The SKA that this job needs is what makes Cabin crew special!
So, irrespective of your stream, remember you will be chosen if you have it in you-The right Attitude, The skills to handle challenges , The subject knowledge and the human behavior knowledge….you will be welcomed aboard!
Remember , being on cloud 9 is special, so be that special Boy who would be picked amongst thousands of other candidates and given wings to fly!

Cabin crew girls- you can marry, have children and enjoy both -Family and work life together!

Hi !
Once upon a time…there was an airline which did not let girls- working as cabin crew, get married! It was The Maharaja!
For some obvious reasons, the airline wanted the girls to work only for a few years ……and when the girls wanted to get married, they had to resign.
With the increase in air travel this policy became a next to impossible thing to be maintained by the airlines.
Now every Airline allows the female crew to get married. The girls should not be married at the time of joining, but after they get confirmed as a crew ,after completing their training, they can get married .They can avail their entitledleave for the same.
They are also allowed to avail maternity leave…in fact, Cabin crew is not allowed to fly when they are expecting and most of the Airlines give leave till the baby turns at least 6 months old.
Some of the Airlines are considerate and allow girls to do only short flights, without night halts till the time the baby turns 1 for the simple reason that the mother has to nurse the baby during the first year of his/her birth.
Such policies make this job convenient for many girls …
When joining an airline, the girls must go through these policies so that there is no problem balancing work and family life.
Fortunately, Flying is no more a job for only unmarried girls!
A step taken for Women Empowerment !

First, I would like to tell you that Many other jobs in India would not pay this kind of salary, irrespective of your technical qualifications…reason….this job is very different from other jobs…needs many other skills … handling of end number of challenges , an attitude worth appreciation and a personality that holds great amount of integrity…and involves the risk of being in sky!(Though aircraft is the safest mode of transport !!!)
There is no discrimination in the Salaries of male and Female Flight Attendants. This is one profession which has no gender discrimination once you are on board…be it any task assignment or Salary division…we all get the same!!
Throughout your career as a crew member your salary will increase on the basis of your seniority…..your allowances will increase, Basic salary will increase too….if you change your department after a few years(which you should, because you must start looking for other options in the airline like training , management, etc. if you wish to retire at 58 yrs of age).
The salary for a trainee crew starts at around 30,000/- INR pm…it starts increasing with added allowances…eventually as a senior ,you can make around 65–70000/- pm, if flying only domestic…if you fly a lot on international routes, you will easily take home a 6 figure salary.
So, all the best…wishing you a great career ahead…if you have it in you…go for it!

To be a Cabin crew means that you need to have certain specific traits.
There is no technical training required.
You don’t need any aviation training.
There are thousands of candidates who have wasted money on such trainings.
So, now let me talk about what you must do to get this job:
Start reading about what is this job all about. You must know what a cabin crew does …all this can be very easily done by reading blogs, posts on FB , twitter, You tube videos etc.
Now make a list of things that need to be accomplished to appear for the interview:
  1. Documentation: 12 th certificate, Pan Card, Aadhaar card, Passport..keep them all ready …with of course a nice professional Resume and full length photograph in business formals.
  2. Communication skills: They are going to monitor your communication skills throughout the interview….make sure you are good at it. Make sure you are practicing the answers, preparing well ….and for this YOU may take training.
  3. Grooming: The right business formals, makeup, Hairstyle and conduct ,all need to be correct….Get yourself groomed from someone who is from this industry and who has the expertise and know how.
  4. Body language: well, this holds a lot of weightage…..what you say is not so important , but how you say…matters a lot!
  5. Don’t forget to carry the most beauuutiful smile of yours when you go for the interview. see all this is not a cake walk…and that is why everybody rushes for trainings….i advise you to get in touch with experienced people from the same field and let them help you out with this.
  6. So, That’s a gist of what you need to do.
