A blog post is now circulating claiming that anyone can apply in the airlines for as long as you are a high school or senior K-12 high school graduate. Allow us to be the one to tell you that this is NOT true for all airlines. Yes, some airlines do accept college undergraduates or those who were not able to complete college, but there are some who do not.
Before we go down to the list, please remember that every airline has their own reason of accepting undergrads or not. We just have to respect their reasons. Also, this should not be a basis of comparison between which airline have a better set of crew. Let us not forget that people like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Thomas Edison are college dropouts. At the same time, let this not be a reason of not to graduate from college as much as possible, especially if you have the means. If you have the means to earn your diplomas, please do. In fact, there are some cabin crew members who did not finish college before entering the airline and now that they have the financial capability to finish their college course, they work and fly at the same time. There are even some cabin crew members who have a masters degree. Some are also taking post-graduate studies while flying.
We are posting this only for information purposes for the benefit of those applying in the airlines. Please do not use this as a basis of comparison between cabin crew of different airlines. Anyway, regardless if you finish from UP, Ateneo, DLSU, UA&P, UST, Lyceum, PLM, Harvard, Stanford, or any other school, you will still all go through the same recruitment process and training,
Last but not least, again as much as possible, if you have the means to finish your college course and get a diploma before flying, please do so.
Indicated here are the airlines we only have information of. If the airline is not indicated here, it means that we are unaware of their educational attainment requirements.
