How to Structure Your Airline Cover Letter?

There are no hard rules regarding the way cover letters should be written. However, following a simple structure can help to guide you through the process.

We find this six-step process works best:

  1. Introduction
  2. Overview of knowledge and expertise
  3. Key selling points
  4. Why you want to work for the airline
  5. Key skills
  6. Polite ending and call to action

As you can see, when broken down into a six-step process, writing a cover letter doesn’t seem so daunting. However, there is plenty of work to be done to ensure you prepare a cover letter that makes an impact on recruiters.

Let’s look at these five steps in more detail.


  1. Introduction

Start your CV with a brief, professional introduction. Explain your interest in the role and tell the reader why you are writing the letter.


  1. Overview of expertise, knowledge, and experience

Provide a brief summary of yourself, touching on your areas of expertise, experiences, and knowledge. Keep this part short and to the point.


  1. Key Selling points

This part of your cover letter is where you highlight your strongest selling points. Draw on your greatest strengths to convince the reader that you’re the perfect candidate for the job.

Have you got multiple years’ business class flight attendant experience? If so, focus on that here. Have you been recognized for improving the passenger experience? If so, focus on that here.

Showcase your key successes and achievements. If possible, quantify your achievements with numbers to bolster them and make a more powerful impact on the reader.

  1. Why you want to work for the airline

This is the part where your research comes into play.

Explain how you fit into the airline’s values and culture. By marrying yourself to the airline’s values and showing that you understand the airline, you’ll show that you’re genuinely interested in working for the airline.


  1. Key skills

Describe a few of your strongest skills. Provide examples of times you have used the skills to achieve positive outcomes.


  1. Polite ending and call to action

End your cover letter by thanking the reader for their time. State that you look forward to hearing from them and that you would be eager to discuss your application further.
