Delta is hiring additional flight attendants for 2022, with the application featuring a “virtual job tryout” so candidates can experience the role firsthand and show their relevant skills.
Since hiring and training ramped back up last year, Delta expects to have over 4,500 new flight attendants on the front line by the end of 2022. Forty graduating classes are scheduled for this year – part of the company’s commitment to unparalleled customer service.
“Providing this inside look into the flight attendant role will support our goal of selecting top-tier candidates who will excel during training and drive world-class customer experience and safety performance on board,” said Jennifer Martin, Managing Director - IFS CX, Learning and Hiring.
Interested candidates can apply beginning Wednesday, June 15. Those who previously applied to the flight attendant position in March 2022 and were not selected to advance will not be able to reapply at this time. There will be an opportunity to reapply this fall. Candidates who applied in August 2021 or January 2022 may reapply now.
What’s required to be a Delta flight attendant?
Applicants must have a high school degree or GED, the ability to work in the U.S., speak English fluently and be at least 21 years of age as of August 1, 2022. Prior to their training start date, all new-hire flight attendants must be fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated is two weeks after the second dose of the vaccine if Pfizer or Moderna or two weeks after one dose of the J&J vaccine.
Flight attendants must be willing to fly both international and domestic routes and be flexible because Delta flights operate day and night, year-round. With a global network spanning over 300 destinations, Delta is also still seeking language of destination applicants who have fluency in English and one of the following languages: Danish, Dutch, Greek, Hebrew and Italian.
The top priority for every Delta flight attendant is to ensure the safety and comfort of all customers while providing exceptional service.
To improve the candidate experience and move them through our hiring process faster, the job will not stay published for long. We recommend interested candidates apply soon.
