Changed
01/07/2024

Cabin crew members, also called stewards or flight attendants, are responsible for the safety of passengers during the flight.

In order to practice this profession, you must meet the following conditions:

  1. Hold a cabin crew member attestation;
  2. Follow an aircraft type specific training and operator conversion training; And
  3. Be assessed physically and mentally fit (Medical certificate).

Hold a cabin crew certificate

To obtain a cabin crew attestation (CCA), complete and successfully complete initial training with an approved “Cabin Crew Initial Training Organization” (CCITO). The attestation is issued by the CCITO.

Follow an aircraft type specific training and operator conversion training

Before a first assignment, each cabin crew member completes the appropriate aircraft type training, as well as the operator conversion training course, and undergoes associated checks.

Be assessed physically and mentally fit (Medical certificate)

Before serving as a crew member on board an aircraft, the operator will subject you to a medical examination to verify that you have the medical skills necessary to perform this function. These requirements are included in Annex IV (MED part) of European Regulation 1178/2011.

A medical certificate is issued by a certified aviation medical center or by an approved physician. The complete list of centers and doctors is available on request from the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority  (BCAA).

Your medical fitness will then be regularly monitored to ensure that you are able to safely carry out the tasks assigned to you.

Initial training organizations

“Cabin Crew Initial Training Organizations” are organizations approved by the BCAA to provide initial training for cabin crew. Each organization applying for CCITO approval must contact the BCAA beforehand.

In Belgium, four CCITOs are approved by the BCAA:
