Cabin Crew Height and Reach Requirements
Here’s our ‘at a glance’ guide to the height and reach requirements for some of the most popular airlines.
For example for regional flight crew there may be a height restriction specified in the job description due to the smaller aircraft used on this route.
Some airlines have different height requirements for male and female crew members.
For the airlines who do not specify a minimum height it’s reach that is important, this is will be assessed through a reach test.
|Airline||Min Height (cm)||Max Height (cm)||Min Reach (cm)|
|Air Europa||165 (f) 170 (m)||–||208|
|Norwegian||165 (f) 170 (m)||–||–|
|Singapore||158 (f) 165 (m)||–||–|
|Wizz Air||165 (f) 175(m)||–||210|
Where the maximum height is not specified and an applicant is particularly tall the airline will take everything into consideration – if you’re a promising candidate this may just mean you’d only be offered work on certain routes i.e. long haul where the aircraft are larger.
