When you join the Turkish Airlines family as part of our cabin staff, you get to travel around the world while you are doing your job with the opportunity to have direct contact with our passengers as a representative of Turkish Airlines.
Our cabin crew take exceptional care of all our guests and carry important responsibilities with regard to safety. Employment opportunities are posted on our website at recruitment times in line with our continually evolving service network.
Flight attendant candidates undergo Basic Safety Training at the Turkish Airlines Flight Training Center. As part of Basic Safety Training, we offer our candidates mandatory technical training, practical training and information on company procedures and our service concep along with seminars and briefings.
Although working hours, shift duration, conditions, and opportunities for flight attendants differ significantly from those of other sectors, we expect all our cabin crew to do their jobs to the same high standards on every flight. We choose our cabin crews from individuals who are always well-presented, smart, friendly, polite, sympathetic, calm, people-focused, able to make decisions in challenging conditions, and have a high potential to be a good team player. For this reason, our cabin crews receive specific comprehensive training both prior to taking up their duties and throughout their professional life, receiving instruction that enables them to act in emergencies.
The highest standards of discipline are required in order to be a flight attendant with Turkish Airlines. However, it is also important to remember that while a career as a member of the cabin crew offers the opportunity to travel to many parts of the world, it also carries with it a much higher level of responsibility than many other jobs and involves non-standard working hours. Accordingly, flight attendant candidates undergo thorough training during the Basic Safety Training program in which they learn both the essentials of flight safety and the features of inflight service.
We provide this training to ensure that our guests are looked after with the utmost comfort and safety. Once they have received their flight certificates and have completed some practice flights, inflight attendants who have successfully completed their training go on to join the team of our ever-expanding flight network. We arrange our cabin crews' flight programs, shifts, and rest periods in accordance with the written directives of international and national civil aviation authorities.
