Contrary to popular opinion, you don’t normally need a cover letter to accompany your cabin crew application. If you are attending an Open Day then follow the advice of the airline – generally speaking, they will request you bring an updated resume and one photo only. A cover letter will not add anything to your application and will simply be discarded.
However, a cover letter **may** be of benefit if you’re applying via the airline’s official careers website. In some cases, the computer system that handles the application process – known as an Applicant Tracking System or ATS – will scan both your resume and cover letter to determine whether you are a good match for the role. By adding a cover letter you are giving yourself an additional opportunity to show you have the skills, experience and aptitude for the position.
If you choose to add a cover letter, then we recommend you make it work as hard as possible – focus on your skills and experience, as well as your knowledge of the role and company. We’ve written this handy guide which may come in really useful – it also includes an example cover letter.
NB. Etihad Airways specifically asks for a cover letter to be attached to your online application.
