1. Degree Requirements
All Singaporean and Malaysian applicants are required to have at least 2 principal passes and 2 subsidiary passes in their A-levels (or its equivalent) and a relatively high standard of English. Candidates from the other approved Asian countries must have a degree. Preference is given to those who speak foreign languages and those with previous customer service experience. Hardly any other airline in the world requires a degree higher than a high school diploma for potential flight attendants.
