The airline has launched a new round of nationwide recruiting to find 300 attendants aged 19 and 25 to serve on popular flights next year.
More than 800 people, mostly students from flight attendant schools who will graduate next year, showed up on the first day of the preliminary stage in Beijing, while more than 5,000 people have applied for the dream job in other cities including Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu. The final 300 will be decided in Beijing.
Air China said the standard height for female applicants should be between 164cm and 172 cm, while the standard for male applicants is 174cm to 180 cm. All applicants have to be unmarried. Apart from the normal criteria for flight attendants, applicants are tested on etiquette and communication.
Candidates with good spoken English will have an advantage over others.
Looks are not mentioned. But it is undoubtedly a major criteria.
