Flight Attendant Jobs, Cabin Crew Jobs Hiring in the Philippines and Salaries

Updated on September 30, 2014

Do you wanna be a Flight Attendant?

See results

The best flight attendant and cabin crew jobs in the Philippines are in this hub. I’ve listed the best airline companies hiring flight attendants, too. It's 2014, it's about time to fly and soar higher...

Being a flight attendant, cabin crew and stewardess is a very rewarding career because of the higher pay and higher status attached with it. Look at that gorgeous uniform, how lovely would that be! Perhaps, the feeling of it is as uplifting and as fantastic as the feeling of flying in the air, so high above the clouds. Whew, being a flight attendant could be heaven.

The airline and flight attendant corporate world and careers are growing rapidly here in the Philippines and I’ve listed on the later part of this hub the airline companies that are hiring cabin crews, stewardess and flight attendants both local and international. Before we go there, let us first talk about the main reason why you’re here basically…hahaha yup, let’s talk about the salary of flight attendants. Hey you, cabin crew, how much you're worth? :)

How much is the salary of flight attendants in the Philippines?

The answer to the question everyone is interested to know about…how much are the salary, wages and benefits for flight attendants in the Philippines? According to worldsalaries.org, flight attendants’ average salary in the Philippines ranges to $914 a month (around 40,000 PHP) based from the NSO (National Statistics Office)

According to PAL (Philippine Air Lines), the number one airline company here in the Philippines, domestic cabin attendant gets P34,619 to 37,619 a month, including productivity pay, transportation allowance and rice allocation while an international cabin attendant receives P50,741 to P60,136, while a flight purser gets P67,880 to P73,570. They also disclosed the details of the perks and pay of its cabin crew opposing the claims of FASAP (Flight Attendants and Stewards Association of the Philippines) months ago regarding PAL’s airline crews issues…

· additional pay for every hour in excess of their tour of duty ($50 + $20 for international flights, P1,250 per hour for domestic)
· first-class hotel accommodation at domestic and international stations
· transportation allowance (or free pick-up from/to residence)
· free meals in flight and on ground
· crew shuttle to/from airport

. thermal clothing allowance (twice a year)
· shoe allowance – P1,200 for male, P800 for female (twice a year)
· uniform allowance – from P11,022 to P16,376 (every 18 months)
· suitcase – costs from P1,563 to P3,647 (replaced every 2 years)
· complete medical and dental coverage for cabin crew and their qualified dependents

· 13th & 14th month pay
· unused days off converted to cash
· unused sick leave converted to cash
· perfect attendance award – equivalent to one month pay + per diem
· retirement benefits – 1.5 month for every year of service.

The airline said that the cabin crew also receives per diem,
- when staying overnight at an international destination ($45-$70)
- when on a technical stop ($100)
- for every regional turnaround flight ($20)
- for every domestic flight (P185)


**data may change without prior notice


Anywayz, Cebu Pacific, another airline company here, has no public details regarding their wages and salary range for their flight attendants and airline crews. The good news is they are currently hiring flight attendant and cabin crew jobs continuously for their expansion and international service. I’ve heard they need around 300 flight attendants today. So expect more and more flight attendant job vacancies.

Filipino flight attendants and cabin crews

Filipinos are everywhere around the world. And Filipinos are known to be very multi-talented and versatile. Because of their fluent English both oral and written, unique charm and good looks, Filipinos can be very good flight attendants and cabin crews. More Filipino flight attendants and stewards now are seen both in local and international airlines and it’s so obvious why airline companies and airline passengers love them.

OK so recently, I’ve seen someone linked an interesting video on twitter about Filipino flight attendants demonstrating flight instructions and entertaining at the same time. LOL

IPAMS (Industrial Personnel and Management Services, Inc.) is the only licensed agency in the Philippines accredited by the POEA to hire cabin crews and flight attendants for airlines companies in the Middle East like Qatar Airways, Saudi Arabian Airlines and the Emirates group. Visit their latest hiring and interviews below:

How to become a flight attendant

To become a flight attendant in the Philippines, airline companies offer training for qualified candidates and applicants. They require applicants to have completed at least 2 years in college, must be single, must be below 27 years old, speak fluent English and Filipino, females must be at least 5’3’’ in height, and males must be at least 5’6’’, nice appearance and good looks are an advantage. They require applicants to have clean complexion and nice set of teeth. So smile and show those perfect set of teeth. Flight attendant training course covers practical activities and exercises on customer service, inflight service, survival swimming, emergency procedures, and first aid. The course includes thorough discussions about cabin crew profession and also various sessions on personality development and good speaking. It ends with resume submission and interview for the real flight attendant job.

Flight attendant interview questions involve mainly testing your good speaking ability and customer service skills. The questions focus more on what would you do in given flight emergency situations and procedures. The key to impress the employers are confidence, preciseness, friendliness and proper flight attendant knowledge.

      Hi, I would like to know If local airlines here in our country is strict with medical? I mean, are they extensive as international airlines like Qatar, Saudia and Emirates? I've been suffering from frustration and depression, because I applied at QR last october, and luckily was recommended for the position, but, unfortunately, was Unfit to work due to my fibrosis which I believe considered as a scar. I got it from Pneumonia when I was 1 yr old, my past x-rays were cleared, I kept my copy of xray films for future reference, So after knowing my condition, I consult our Pulmonologist about it, He asked me to bring another x ray film for comparisson. The x ray film that I brought was dated October 2013, and the reading was cleared, so he compare it, to my surprise I really do have that Fibrosis since then.

      Well that's life, Maybe I am not for Middle East, as far as I know, not the company itself is strict with lung conditions but the Middle East coutries itself. So, for now I really want to know, If PR, 2P, 5j, AK and Tiger Air is strict with my condition. Actually my doctor already gave me a Medical Certificate that I am fit to work. This is my dream, that's why it hurts a lot.

      Hello there 25. I read so many posts here.. well just wanna share my experience though my application seemed a dilemma to me. I applied for QR just last week of september and we were like thousands in shang hotel. Well as we went to the process, they measured us and collect our photos and CVs. We were advised to meet with the recruiters to hand them our CVs and photo without an interview. It happened that the recruiter told me that i was shortlisted and will be notified by the agency but sad to say i didnt get a phone call. That remained a big question until now coz they didnt even ask anything from us neither conducted an interview.. and what was their basis from hiring..that open day was a tough one really.. its no joke to apply for a cabin crew especially in international airline companies but it served as a driving force for me to push more, hold on to the faith and pursue my dream! Now am waiting for feedbacks to new applications and i can say that it made me more eager to reach the star! :)

      Good day! It's always been my dream to become a FA I'm 22y/o and a registered nurse. I think I am qualified for the job except I still have my braces on and not so clear complexion. But I'm working on to improve that before I apply for the job. I'm aiming for PAL this year. I hope and pray to get the job. I REALLY want to be a FA ever since.:) My only question is can I go directly to PAL to apply? Then if ever I get accepted, I will start their training.. Or I will apply/enroll to their learning center first then apply for the job? Thank you so much :)

      @Jovet don’t worry about your wisdom tooth because it can’t be seen when you smile or talk.

      @Jamie oh wow that was so courageous of you to give up your current job just for PAL’s offer. It means you really want the FA job. I wish they would consider your application because you really deserve it. And anyway your health problem is not really hindrance in performing your flight attendant job. I will pray for you, sis. My advice is wait for the decision of the president. If the result is not what you expected, then make an appeal. Really hope you’ll get it. :) Just pray.

      Hi I just want to share with you my current situation and also to ask for an advise and prayers.

      I used to work with PAL as ticketing representative. I tried to apply twice as a cabin crew but did not got in so I decided to resigned last 2011 and started my career as a Sales in a IT company.

      Even though I already have a stable career I still want to become a flight attendant because this is what I really wanted to do.

      Just recently, I tried again to apply with PAL as a cabin crew during their open day hiring at Diamond Hotel. This time I was able to passed the initial screening, exam, final interview and medical. Since, I am an exPAL employee I need to undergo background check before I will be listed for the training.

      My dilemma was my current company gave me a new position and I was scheduled to go out of the country for training this October and target date of PAL's cabin crew training is October 29. I turned-down my current position and training because I really want to move back with PAL as a Cabin Crew. I waited first for the result of the pre-employment medical exam and consulted my seniors before with PAL before I resigned. As far as we know PAL's background check will cover my exit clearance and engagements with other department.

      When I called PAL's HR department they told me that my Medical Background check is not recommending me for the position because of "ovarian cyst". As a Pal employee, you have medical benefits. I have hormonal imbalance that is why I do not have regular monthly period that cause polycystic ovaries which I am consulting the OB of PAL when I was with them. It is nothing serious as before its normal to all women who have irregular period. According to PAL's HR department they will be raising this with the office of the President. I have passed the pre-employment medical but they are concerning about my previous check-up records with them.

      I was thinking of writing an e-mail to the President asking to reconsider my application but I also do not want to bypass the HR department of PAL.

      Im not expecting this because I was able to passed the medical. My problem now is that Im ending up unemployed and Im the only one working in my family. =(

      Wishing PAL will consider my application. I do not know what to do now.

      I never had confirmed that yet but I know years ago, that was one of the reasons why they had issues with FASAP. So many things have changed with PAL

      If you look younger than your age and you are confident enough I think age wont matter specially if you're still in the twenties..

      @Mae: You're welcome! Cheers! :) What happen to your application?

      @Marsiano: Yes, you are still qualified. In fact, international airlines doesn't have age limit unlike local airlines. Why don't you try to apply at Airphil Express? They require 18-30 years of age for cabin crew applicants.

      hi graceposh :) Are you a flight attendant in PAL?

      helo grace! is it? i havent done with my medical yet, they asked to go to nichols for that initial medical, but i went home instead since I can do it anytime. and in my own convenience. And during my impact interview and when I came to know I passed and handed me the medical slip they informed us that the doctor is not available at the moment so I opted to go there once the doctor is available. Since Im having doubts with my color vision, that is also why Im a bit stranged to come for the medical. Oh my. if they very strict on that definitely I wont make it. Sad. Im just wondering whats the point of having perfect Color Vision? We are not applying for pilots anyway. I just cant seem to understand what is the relevance of it. Color blindness does not mean you can not distinguish colors. I can definitely tell you what is black,white,red,green etc. Anyway I appreciate your thoughts :)

      Hi Leoj! Yes they are strict with that matter. I'll share my friend's experience in PAL. She was not considered since she has problem with identifying the colored number. I can't remember the exact term the doctor used for it. It happened during the grand recruitment in Diamond Hotel last month. She didn't make it to the next process. What did they tell you? I mean, do you have to wait for their update regrading the status of your medical?

      Hi. i just want to ask about my application in PAL as a cabin crew. I passed the impact interview already and they gave me my initial medical to continue with the hiring process. I just have doubts with my vision thats why Im a bit discouraged. I have perfect vision at 20/20 but i am colour blind. I can not identify the number in ishihara test for color. but definitely I can tell what colour if u asked me to. Im just worried about it. there is no cure for these but in the first place it is not a disease proper. I just dont know if they are very strict on this.

      domestic airlines prioritize college graduates and at least 21. You can try the international route but I know they prefer college level too

      no wonder why too many PAL employees were rallying... The company used to be one of the most-dreamed company to work for.

      PAL dicriminate the applicants too much... that's why there are so many Filipinos whose unemployed. They're so different from AA. Poor Juan de la Cruz...

      yes International Airlines accept undergrads. They are particular with the appeal, confidence and character of the applicant. Qatar Airways just had open-day recruitment last August 11 in Cebu I heard from the comment above.

      @Jmish Why not attend the interview and let your height be not an issue :) Yes they are strict with the height but who knows.. On every rule, there is an exemption. You might be the only exemption.. :)

      @Dheejay they prefer 4-year course grads although some airlines accept 2-year course grads. Preference is still a preference

      hi! just want to ask if the height requirement is really necessary.. I'm 157cm,. 5'1 and 1/2.. i have applied to cebu pcific through jobstreet.com and i was invited for an interview on Monday. however, when i applied through the internet, i did not mention my height. Is it possible for a 5'1 1/2 feet tall female can pass at cebu pac? or are they really that strict with the height req? thank you very much! :)

      I see why CebuPac is so successful as one of the best local airlines here, not only because they know what people are looking for but also they know what they are looking for (employees) Cheers! I'm excited about your work soon Precious. You are so amazing! :)

      Hi there! My training in cebpac is ongoing and I must say that its very intense and info overload training.

      I have 4 classmates who have a child already and 1 of them is married. So to those aspiring who are hesitating to apply coz they have a child, please don't be. Cebpac is not judgmental and will not take away opportunities from you :)
