hey miaka & eve, thx! umm but e thing is i might nt, 'A'-levels end of this year, my current results dun look v.promising... im kinda at a lost of wad to do if i dun qualify for uni. if i get in, prob study hospi&tourism or biz, if i dun, mayb go poly study hospi. tts why was wonderin if they take 18years of age, but i only worked a couple of mths at Popular b4, think will lose out by leaps to others, even though i'll willingly learn & pick up skills needed as FA.. sighs.. thx again though :) oh btw do u guys know wads e max age u can stay as an FA, like will they kick u out once ure old or smth? (hah i guess nt right, this is a major corporation)

thanX! :D


Most likely i think u shd forget abt gg for the interview. They would not want u to disrupt ur studies, anyway u have one more year to go.. why the rush..they would not consider u cos they want ppl who can start their training immediately.

You can try gg for the interview for experience but be prepared if they reject u. :-|


hi, im new here too & have been readin a no. of posts :) have a no. of qns though, thx in advance to those who can help! i've wanted to be a FA for rather long but im only finishing my JC this year, only 18 :cry: does SIA have a min. age limit? i've read tt this is e 3rd time SIA is conductin interviews for FA in e last 6mths is this true? are all e 3times conducted here in SG? Im not sure abt gng to uni, but think my qualifications will put me at a disadvantage compared to others who're older. Does anyone know when's e nxt interview or how long it'll normally take b4 they conduct e nxt, usually ard which mths? :? hee tt muz have been alot! i sent in an enquiry to SIA 2days ago but they have yet to reply :( really need ans to decide, thx!



Well no harm givin a try wendy. Just gain an experience how u fare in the interview. Usually it takes more than 1 try to get in SIA.

Its hard to gauge when their next recruitment will be because they are gona have already 3 recruitments in 6 mths.

I think i have mentioned before in the forum, SIA wont be too keen to recruit students. Especially when they sort of in need of ppl for the new planes.

Concentrate on ur A levels first i would advice. :wink:

Yes there was a mention abt ppl wit tattoos can qualify, but it was under tiger airways if i was not wrong. For SIA , i do not think there is a high chance being selected if u got a tattoo. :-|


Use some common sense will you? Not only is Tiger Airways founded by SIA,
if a tattoo cannot be seen when in uniform what will it matter? Bye the way the stewardess I referred to was in actual fact referring to aircrew on both.

No, if other cabin crew members have them they are irrelevant it is only if they are visible in uniform would they cause rejection.

Ps: Try asking Queeni-me she trained alongside SIA cabin crew.

I am an oversea canidate, I had gone through all round interviews, after the body check, how long i have to wait for the contract call? Isn't that I have to wait the body result together with the successfulness of the working permit regislation?

Usually after body check, how long I have to wait? We have to go through another body check in singapore, so we will sign contract in singapore after going through the further body check or sign it in prior?

How 's the commencement of the training date? when will I know? I sincerely hope boardmates could solve me enquiries. I am looking forward for that.

nope, they do not have fixed dates, and mostly recruitment is done in Malaysia and Singapore. You can always check out SIA's website for recruitment information

I think the minimum age for SIA is 18. Remember Farzana, the SQ006 stewardess who survived? She joined at the age of 18. And you wendy, you will be 19 year-old next year. But if you apply this weekend, i dont think SIA will accept you and i suggest you concentrate on your A levels first although you have no plans for University.

After you are done with your A levels(in the process of waiting for results), you can apply for SIA. SIA take in applicants who are waiting for their A level results or soon receiving their polytechnic diplomas.

I wish you the best Wendy! :D
