Good news for aspiring flight attendants in Canada! Earlier this month, Air Canada advertised flight attendant vacancies, with the intention of increasing the number of flight attendants to be based at its Toronto and Vancouver hubs.

The Canadian flag carrier is hoping the proposed uptake of flight attendants will “help elevate us (Air Canada) from the #1 airline in North America to a top-10 Global Airline in all that we do.”

Applicant considerations

Those interested in the high-flying role can expect a respectable starting salary of CAD 28.85/ hour ($21.27/ hour). Additionally, successful applicants will also have the unique opportunity to travel the globe across Air Canada’s many domestic and international routes.

Flight attendants are expected in the airlines’ words to “be the face and personality of Air Canada, helping us shape the next chapter of our 80-year story”.

The airline also expects flight attendants to be “safety-minded” and “empathetic”, and to “exude a warm and caring demeanor” among many other attributes.

Applicants should be prepared to be “ambassadors of Canada” in the eyes of the national flag carrier. In addition, understanding and considerate individuals are preferred for this role.

This is because successful flight attendants are expected to “put themselves in our customers’ shoes, treating them with warmth, graciousness and dignity.”

Air Canada is a 4-star certified airline on Skytrax, therefore successful flight attendants must be able to provide the exceptional level of service and care expected of them.

It should be noted that the carrier has stated that it prefers candidates who speak English and French fluently. In addition, successful applicants must:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Hold a valid Canadian passport that allows travel to all destinations served by Air Canada
  • Available during irregular working hours (mornings, evenings, weekends, and statutory holidays)
  • Willing to relocate to our Air Canada’s base in Toronto or Vancouver

From those interested, a full job description is provided by the airline here.
