In-flight English for Cabin Crew (PP) HKG

Do you need to improve your English before applying to CX, KA, EK, HKA, HKE or other airline operating in Hong Kong?

English course for flight attendants

Strong English communication skills are essential for all airline staff as they frequently have contact with the public.  If you want to start a career as a flight attendant you will find that recruitment departments require that you have:

  • Strong English communication skills
  • Customer service skills
  • Cultural awareness and sensitivity when dealing with people
  • Experience in handling difficult situations
  • Confidence when speaking with other English speakers.

You can develop each of these skills on the In-flight English for Cabin Crew course. Particular emphasis is given to improving core language skills.  

Listening comprehension, vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, fluency, confidence

Improve your English and increase your chances of finding a cabin crew job

In-flight English for Cabin Crew gives you the English language skills you need to become an effective flight attendant. When you attend an airline interview you will be able to confidently answer questions in English and demonstrate how to deal with routine and non-routine situations that could occur during flight. You will have greater awareness of differences between cultures, more sensitivity when dealing with customers and the ability to manage difficult situations in English.

But won't the airline teach me everything I need to know during my initial training (if I'm successful)?

English for flight attendants

No.  The airline will not teach you how to speak English. The airline will expect you to have a basic level of English when you join the airline, and then improve your language skills in your own time.  Even airlines with large language training departments offer minimal ongoing language training for their flight attendants. Passengers and flight crew all over the world recognise that flight attendants need a high level of language proficiency.

Don't wait for the airline to teach you English or you could lose the job to someone who already has better English. If you are serious about a career as a flight attendant the best way to improve your proficiency in English is with Aviation English Asia's integrated In-flight English for Cabin Crew and General English course.


Professional English language training for successful candidates

In-flight English for Cabin Crew is the pre-professional version of In-flight English - it is designed as a complete language training solution for major airlines. Many airline employees say that Aviation English Asia courses are BETTER than the language training provided by their airline.  

Don't make the mistake of focusing only on the job interview! 


In-flight English gives you real language skills that will be useful throughout your career - not just an interview. In-flight English for Cabin Crew Careers includes all the language skills of a mainstream General English course, but is much more focused on topics that are relevant to an airline career. Each unit includes case studies and role-play exercises so you will get lots of speaking and listening practice.
