1. Cabin Crew Cover Letter Examples

Our sample cover letter for cabin crew applications comes from Heather, who has two years of experience working for a small airline company, and is now looking to progress to a bigger one.

Example #1: Cabin Crew Cover Letter Example

Heather Hawkins

Head of Recruitment


1 Landing Lane

Miami, FL 33176

Dear Heather,

As a short-distance flight attendant with jetBlue, I was excited to find the recruitment had opened for the international cabin crew job at flyBy. I have 2+ years of experience and over 1000 flights under my belt, and I’d be overjoyed to progress further with flyBy.

Since starting with jetBlue, I’ve adapted extremely quickly, learned invaluable customer service and conflict resolution skills, and have managed a 100% client satisfaction rate so far with no complaints. I take not only the customer service, but also the security side of flight attending very seriously. I have scored 100% for technical and safety knowledge of every aircraft I am certified by my airline to attend. I am CPR and BLS certified by the American Heart Association, and have unfortunately had the necessity to use those skills 2times in a choking accident and a heart attack, in both cases the clients were sustained until emergency landing and transported to the nearest hospital, where they both fully recovered.

I’m constantly developing, gaining more supporting and auxiliary skills, while expanding my existing problem solving, customer service, and empathy skills. I see myself as representing the airline as long as the uniform is on, so I treat it as if I were at work from the moment I enter the airport to the moment I leave, offering help to anyone that asks if needed. I would be excited to bring the same diligence to flyBy. 

When would be a good time to catch up with you about this opportunity? I am eager to tell you about the time I talked down a customer hell-bent on making a complaint when we land, all the way to them sending a letter of commendation to the HQ.

Best Regards,

Virginia A. Sease



Virginia is going to make it to the interview at Mach 2 speed. 

However, you might be wondering how to compose a cover letter for cabin crew with no experience Let’s do it. Antonio has never worked a cabin crew job before, but that won’t stop him.

Example #2: Cabin Crew Cover Letter With No Experience

Antonio Anderson

El Toro, CA 92630

Heather Hawkins

Head of Recruitment


1 Landing Lane

Miami, FL 33176

Dear Heather,

I am writing to you to enquire about the entry-level short-distance cabin crew position you have advertised online. Having been flyBy’s customer several times both locally and internationally, I think I understand and can identify with the ethos of the company.

My 5+ years of experience in the hospitality and customer service industries equip me with the necessary prerequisites for this position. As a waiter at Lucio’s, I have been responsible for 18 tables at the same time, serving 400+ customers over the course of a night. I have been commended 3 times for great customer service, and even had 2 customers bring in Christmas gifts after particularly good interactions during the holiday season. I am in the habit of keeping accurate track of everyone’s needs, and have the ability to scan the room and see where problems will arise. I am a team player, and communicate clearly and politely with colleagues—in fact, we’re such a good team, nobody has left the place in 4 years.

I believe that my customer service skills combined flyBy’s culture and class, as well as training, will make me an effective and well-liked flyBy employee.

When would be a good time to connect to discuss this opportunity in more detail? 

Kind Regards,

Antonio Anderson



Antonio made best use of his relevant skills and experiences, and backed them up with numbers to show that he can show comparable situations on the ground. That’s half of success.

2. Write a Cabin Crew Cover Letter With Flying Colours

1. Ace the Cabin Crew Cover Letter Format

Considering what emphasis some airlines put on the appearance and presentation of their employees, it’s only wise to exercise the same caution and diligence when writing your cover letter for cabin crew positions.

Here is the fail-safe cover letter format:

  • Use at least a 1-inch margin on every side.
  • Always ‘Align Left’. 
  • Use 1.15 line spacing, and leave an empty line between every section and paragraph.
  • Use a font consistent with your CV font
  • Perfect cover letter length? 1 page.

Roll out onto the runway. Let’s see what to include in your cover letter.

2. List Your Details in the Header 

A flight attendant should appear presentable and composed from any angle. Same goes for your CV and cabin crew cover letter—make sure your header matches the CV header. Underneath, list the city and date of the letter, and below, the details of the person hiring. 

Check against our template:

Cabin Crew Cover Letter Header 

[ Your Full Name]

[ Your Job Title ] (Optional)

[ Address ]

[ Phone Number ]

[ Email Address ]

[ City and Date ]

[ Hiring Manager’s Full Name ]

[ Hiring Manager’s Position ]

[ Company Name ]

[ Company Street Address ]

[ City and Zip Code ]

3. Identify The Position and Introduce Yourself

Let’s get ready for a gentle takeoff. Address the recruiter by name in your cover letter. If you can’t find it in the job posting, use LinkedIn. Failing that, you can try to call them up and find out the information directly.

Chances are the person handling your application is only handling cabin crew applications, but do not risk anything still state exactly which job opening you’re applying for in the opening paragraph of your cover letter

This is a good place to list your years of experience—this is a desired and sought-after job, and many will be applying without a shred of experience. If you don’t have airborne experience, focus on customer service and hospitality experience, after all, it’s the same—just 30,000 feet up. 

Fill in the [blanks]:

Cabin Crew Cover Letter Sample: Introduction

Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name]:

I was most excited about flight attendant recruitment opening again at [target airline name]. I have worked on national and international commercial flights for [X] years now, and have developed varied and adaptive skills to handle customers from all over the globe and walks of life, and to be able to serve them with the touch of class that [target airline name] commands.

4. Turn the Engines Up To 11

Now that you have eased them in, it’s time to go full blast. In the middle paragraph, most cabin crew cover letters will talk about how they have a ‘friendly manner’, a ‘warm disposition’ and ‘customer service skills.’ Great. All things that they will have to check at the interview.

Empty statements like that bore recruiters to no end. Instead, try and focus on the tangible achievements, and things that will set you apart from the crowd. Show that you are not a glorified waiter/waitress. Think numbers, achievements from your CV.

Start with this:

Cabin Crew Cover Letter Sample: Second Paragraph

In my [X]+ years as a [your position name] on [short distance/national/international] flights, I have spent [X] hours in the air, serving approximately [X] customers, and achieving a [X]% client satisfaction rate over this period. I have never had any incidents or even complaints, I am skillful at defusing situations before they reach that stage.

5. Make The Final Interview

In most cases, the last paragraph is the place to placate the potential employer a tiny bit. Not so much in a cover letter for cabin crew jobs. Airlines aren’t really saving the world, or doing anything vastly different, or more ethically, or cooler than any other airline.

Therefore, focus on telling them what you can bring that corresponds to their values. Each airline is different. The type of routes they operate, the level of luxury, their country of origin— all dictate their values. Dig a little into them and see what makes them tick.

Fill in the [blanks]:

Cabin Crew Cover Letter Sample: Third Paragraph

I’m always striving to develop myself, and improve my customer service, problem solving, and empathy skills. I purposely go the extra mile, from the moment the first customer boards the plane, to when I leave the airport—after all, I’m still in uniform and representing the company. I am excited to bring the same diligence to [Target Airline Name]. 

6. Make The Landing

Pretty faces are a dime a dozen. In such a customer-facing, boisterous and extroverted profession as flight attendant, initiative, and outgoingness is key. This is as good a place as any to start.

Show initiative and drive by requesting an interview and signing off politely.
