5 Cabin Crew Cover Letter Samples (Step-By-Step Writing Guide)

There are two types of job application cover letters, those that work and those that don't!

The job application cover letter is the most important part of any job application, yet is often the area that is paid least attention.

Think about it. When you send a job application to an employer or a recruiter, the first thing that is going to be read is the cover letter.

Therefore, it's the cover letter that creates the first impression.

If the cover letter isn't up to standard, then your job application stands a good chance of going no further, no matter how good your CV, resume or job application form is.

Cabin Crew Motivational Letter

The motivational letter is your opportunity to sell yourself and make a positive first impression.

Get it right and you'll be certain to make the shortlist!

Many candidates forget to include the cabin crew cover letter when applying online. It's almost like forgetting a cake on a birthday party or publishing a book without a cover.

Major airlines receive tons of online applications and for you to add a cover letter makes the process easier and shows that you put in the extra effort.

The whole purpose of a cover letter is a short summary of your CV which explains briefly your experience and goals to become a flight attendant.

How To Write a Cover Letter

There are several styles and ways to write a cover letter. It depends on the type of job that you are applying for. Here are some methods that you can follow to ensure that your cover letters will help you to get the job that you desire.

First, before you start to write your cover letter, you have to do some research on the company you are applying to work at. You need to find out what the mission of the company is, what their target audience is, what they do differently than other businesses, etc.

This will show that you are actually interested in the job as a career and not just a job to get money and nothing else. This can get you the interview and then you will at least have a shot at the job.

Secondly...

When you begin your letter, you need to start by letting the business know the reason you are sending them your resume. It should be two or three sentences long and list the name of the job you are applying for, but should merely state that you are applying for it and not go into details about where you saw the ad, etc. You can also put in why you are interested in the company and would like to have the job.

Third...

Next, you should outline all of your qualifications and show how these match the employer’s requirements. This is important and can get you a heads up in advance.

Then, in the next paragraph, you need to think of a sentence that will cause the prospective employer to want to hire you. You should also explain that you are also attaching your resume to the application and say when you are available to be interviewed.

Lastly...

Be sure to proofread your letter and check for any misspellings or awkward sentences.

Also, be sure to write your sentences in the active voice, not passive as this shows more strength. You will turn off a prospective employer if there are mistakes in your cover letter and won’t even get that all important interview.


Focus on the fundamental points when writing your cover letter


In short, what are the key roles of the air hostess/steward profession?

Reception: the work of the aircrew starts upstream of the flight, with the welcome of the passengers aboard the plane. And even before the arrival of travelers, the verification of the operation and safety equipment in the cabin is necessary.

Comfort: travelers must be assured of being properly installed, well served and quite comfortable.

Mastery: The aircrew of an airplane is known for its double mastery. Technical mastery (knowledge of the rules of safety and operation of emergency equipment, first aid gestures, English language) and self-control (calmness, serenity, insurance).

Safety: Passengers need to be confident so that their flight runs smoothly, and aware of emergency procedures to follow in the event of an accident.

Home, Comfort, Mastery, Safety are the watchwords of the profession. These are the qualities that airline recruiters are looking for, and these are the ones you need to put forward in your flight attendant cover letter.

Write a flight attendant cover letter that highlights your interests:

Why choose one company over another? This is the question that the recruiter will ask in detailing your application, and it is this question that you must answer in the introductory paragraph of your flight attendant cover letter.

Relate the philosophy of the job (the quality of the service provided during the flight) and the internal policy of the company: specify that it is known or appreciated for its efficiency and for the availability and courtesy of its crew.

Indicate how your interest in this company is in keeping with its prestige: you have the desire to start/continue/evolve in a high standing company, in a dynamic environment, alongside a voluntary and motivated team, etc. Express how much you would like to soak up the influence of this company to learn more about the practice of your trade.

If you're applying for a small or low-cost company, or it's your first job, highlight your need for the first-time experience with a young and motivated team. And make this part of your flight attendant cover letter a promise: that you will put your skills and qualities at the service of your employer and passengers.


Know how to highlight your skills


The job of cabin crew is based on two types of skills that your letter of motivation must specify: techniques (control of instructions, equipment, and language) and natural (personal qualities).

Technical skills

When a flight attendant applies to a company, it means that she/he can justify the minimum necessary for such an application. What will differentiate is the conditions of your previous job experience or aviation training. So, you have to indicate:
  • In which organization did you take your training
  • In which company did you practice your hours
  • The fact that you have been well trained in the safety instructions and rules that ensure the smooth running of a flight
  • If you hold a first aid certificate
  • The languages you speak fluently
  • If you have previous experience in hospitality or business (highlighting the importance of service and customer relationship in the hostess business)
  • Be careful, however, no lie or exaggeration! All the info in your cover letter must be accurate and up-to-date.

Cover Letter 5





How to edit the cover letters above?
I have put these 5 samples to give you an idea and you can copy whatever is suitable based on your personal experience and character.
  • Bold text: Change the underlined text to fit your information
  • [Company Name]: change the yellow text according to the airline you're applying to.
  • Do not exceed the cover letter size unless necessary
  • Keep things simple and short

Conclusion:

All in all, cover letters are very necessary tools that can help job seekers get their foot in the door. If you don’t write a good cover letter and it is too generic or has lots of errors in it, the employer will more than likely pass you over no matter how impressive your resume is or how qualified you are for the job.

Therefore you need to write a targeted cover letter with no grammatical errors and gear it to each and every job you apply for if you want to get that chance to interview for your dream job.
