South African Airways

At SAA it is our priority to protect our staff and students and safeguard against the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID – 19). As a result, all cabin crew training courses will be suspended until further notice.  Look out for our revised training schedule in the near future.


Representing an airline as a cabin crew member is a unique and wonderful opportunity. Cabin Crew Members are ambassadors of their airline and must display professionalism at all times.

Besides being a Safety Officer on board an aircraft, you will be a Customer Service Professional employed to fulfil the needs and requirements of your airline’s customers. Your role will include all aspects of cabin safety, first aid and customer service.

Every day will hold a new and exciting challenge for you!

So, if you enjoy interacting with people and:

  • Are always well-groomed
  • Are Compassionate and Caring
  • Are Confident and Responsible
  • Have excellent Communication Skills
  • Have a good command of the English language, and
  • Have the ability to remain calm and controlled when under pressure…

Then a career as a Cabin Crew Member is for you!

South African Airways now offers Cabin Crew Training Programmes (for Cabin Crew Licensing purposes) to the general public.
