Job as Cabin Crew/Flight Attendant/Stewardess for MAS

Update 11.57am 19/03/10:  Technical glitch for the past 2 hours which made it hard to access my site. Thank you for those who emailed :)

Update: 5.14pm 29/06/10 The latest updates will be posted at the bottom :)

There has been a spike in my site especially with searches on MAS cabin crew interviews in the past 2 weeks. I have replied mails and messages regarding the questions being asked. But for the benefit of future visitors to this site, i would post up a few more information on top of what i have written last year regarding “What Does It Take to Become a MAS Air Stewardess“.

I would use the most recent comment by Michael Sibinal who was asking on behalf of his daughter, as a guide to those who seek similar answers.

a) Can she apply through this website (…)?

Sadly you can’t :P You would have to go thru the proper channel via their main website :P

b) When is the next intake?

The next walk in interview is in fact tmr, Saturday 20st of March 2010 for the ladies and for the guys, it will be on the 21st. Please check the above mentioned website for future updates.

c) Does MAS has its own training center for successful applicants or MAS engages a 3rd party to conduct the

MAS has their own training center in Kelana Jaya. Certain part of the course would involve external personals, eg. grooming, etc. where they would be brought to the training center itself.

d) How long does it take? (I heard around 3 months….??)

Yeap, approximately 3 months

e) What’s the fee like?

I am not really sure frankly, i don’;t think there’s a fee as you would be bonded for a few years. You would have to double check on this :)

f) Does the successful candidate get a certificate of competency, et al., at the end of the course?

I know there’s a graduation ceremony for those whom are successful.

g) Where do they (students) stay?

That’s a good question but unfortunately i am not sure of that either. Probably around Kelana Jaya area.

    1. i really hope i could answer that question but it’s best if you were to ask MAS staffs yourself. logically it shouldn’t be a problem as the attire covers your whole leg, if you get what i mean.

      not confident enough? you wouldn’t know if you don’t try :) just give it a shot when there’s an opening in the future ;)

  4. thank you~hahaha!!!but maybe will try it later cause currently stil a student…:p

  7. halo,i would like 2 knw cn i apply it wif my stpm o degree cert? I want 2 knw the pass of spm is 5c o 6c?do The gd eyesight mean 4 no more myopia?

  8. Hi.
    A few questions. I heard that there is a 3 month training period. So you will only be confirmed after 3months? If so its a little troublesome for I have to quit my job, go for training and not knowing by the end of the 3 months if I am qualified. Am I required to stay in Kelana Jaya for 3 months while the training is conducted? I have missed the interview so how soon is the next one?

    Thanks :)

  9. Hi there,

    just wanna check whether if a candidate has a history of broken leg, but now currently in perfect shape, would this affect the application?
