Alexander Frendo, Cabin Crew since April 2016, Air Malta plc


Hi, I’m Alexander, I am a Cabin Crew with Air Malta and this is my story:

From a very young age I always had a passion towards aviation. I was fascinated with flying and the origins of aviation. . I remember my first air shows with my father we watched the high performance jets performing all their tricks! It was so exciting for a 7 year old! Following that experience, my mind was determined - I wanted to become a commercial pilot. Thirteen years later I joined a local aviation school. In the meantime I had the wish to experience a job in the same industry, so I applied for the Air Malta Cabin Crew Training course. Cabin Crew Following a selection process, I made it to the Initial training Course which was spread over a period of seven weeks. It was an intensive course but luckily our dedicated Instructors made it fun.

After successfully completing this training, I also made it through the recruitment process and was offered the job! My first familiarisation flight was to Amsterdam, and thankfully the rest of the crew made me feel welcome. One of the aspects that I really like being a Cabin Crew is that I get to work with different colleagues. This gave me the opportunity to learn and become open to new ideas and perspectives.  It has only been a few months since I joined the Air Malta family and I absolutely love it. I enjoy interacting with people and also experiencing the different cultures. I also get the privilege to interact with the pilots who are always very helpful to provide a word of advice for my future career.

I take pride in my job, and am always eager to provide a warm and friendly service. Needless to say that safety comes first, and this is the very first thing the Instructors on the training course ingrain in the new trainees! Working long hours and nights might be challenging at times but on the other hand I don’t really mind it since I consider the role of Cabin Crew as an enjoyable experience and appreciate every moment.

Denise Bugeja, Cabin Crew since 2012, Joined Air Malta in August 2016

Hi, I’m Denise, I am a Cabin Crew with Air Malta and this is my story:

Five months ago I started training with Air Malta. Whilst the training was very challenging, I must say that the Instructors were very competent and helpful. For sure this is done to ensure that new cabin crew are well prepared for every circumstance. The training absolutely exceeded my expectations!

Once I started flying I realised that the rewards you reap from the job are priceless. You get to work with amazing colleagues, test your limits and work on them in order to become more efficient, think critically and meet different people from all over the globe. During the flight, cabin crew need to adhere to the standards that are expected from a flag carrier, whilst providing an exceptional service in order to give passengers a safe and remarkable journey.  

This is just a glimpse. A glimpse of the office in the sky!

Andrea Zammit, Cabin Crew since April 2016, Air Malta plc

Hi, I’m Andrea, I am a Cabin Crew with Air Malta and this is my story:

Prestige, pride and honour, are a few thoughts that used to cross my mind whenever I came across a member of Air Malta’s crew. It was time for me to experience new opportunities and as soon as I heard Air Malta were once again training new crew, I filled in an application, and from that moment on, I never looked back. From the intriguing selection process to being accepted to start the training programme, I knew that this was going to be an experience of a lifetime.

The training programme was detailed and gave me insight and the necessary skills needed to perform cabin crew duties competently. After successful completion of training, it was time for me to wear the elegant uniform and exhibit what I had learnt. From my first flight as cabin crew I felt part of the Air Malta’s family and nowadays I can proudly say that together with my colleagues I get to welcome, attend to and keep passengers safe whilst enjoying the marvellous and exclusive picturesque scenery from the sky!
