Airlines with either only male or only female crew

Mon Dec 25, 2017 8:40 am

I just read that Vistara will now introduce male FA. I was wondering if there are airlines who hire exclusively male or female crew for certain jobs like pilots or FA. And for what reasons.

Really? An Indian airline so progressive it will hire male F/As? What next? Female pilots?

GoAir announced in 2013 that it would hire only female cabin crew to save fuel.

Aegean in Greece. Only female and handpicked cabin crew, don't think that would be allowed in any other EU country such as UK, Germany etc. Reasons are obvious ;)

EVA does have male flight attendants. Mostly females, but I have flown them and had male flight attendants.

Strange, when did they introduce the policy? I've certainly been on Aegean flights with male cabin crew, and my experience with flying them is pretty much every year since 1999.

They are currently advertising for cabin crew/flight attendants and the job description includes the phrase (translated from Greek)
For male candidates, military obligations should be met
meaning that candidates should have completed their compulsory military service period, but why bother saying it if they don't employ men?

You are right I stand corrected. Strange cause I have never flown with male cabin crew plus I know for sure that their policy a few years back was female cabin crew.

Greece must follow the same EU rules as the other countries you mention. Although there are no quotas (like 50/50) it's possible there are more female candidates, hence more female hired.

Andes in Argentina only has female cabin staff. I am surprised the INADI - Argentina's anti discrimination agency hasn't slapped them with a lawsuit yet.

With them growing by 100% this last year, I doubt they can continue to hire only females.

That's right, there are no Japanese male FA's at ANA. However, there are some few non-Japanese ones (so on domestic routes, the cabin crew is always exclusively female).
