Preliminary Screening

The moment you have successfully sent it your application, you’ll receive an e-mail stating that the company has indeed received it as an official confirmation. Afterward, their recruitment team will assess whether your credentials and skills match the position that you’re applying for.

Initial Interview

Within two weeks after you have received the e-mail confirmation, you will receive an update regarding the status of your application. If you’ve been shortlisted, the company will invite you to meet them for the initial interview with the recruiter and one of the managers.

Background Check

The company will then course a security check and additional assessment as you move on to the next stages.

Follow-up Interview

If KLM Airlines saw you as a strong candidate for the job, they will invite you for the follow-up interview to further know you better, and vice versa. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions if you’d like. The interviews usually happen at Schiphol Airport, or any nearby place, so it will be good to familiarize yourself with the area.

This part of the application is the most crucial because if you’re cleared for the security check and have impressed the recruiters, they will gladly hand you an employment contract and give you details about the things you’ll need to do or prepare before having you onboard.


If you’re dreaming to wear their cabin crew uniform one day, you might want to check their list of requirements one more time to see if you’re a good fit or to prepare the things that you don’t have yet as of the moment.

Good luck! We look forward to seeing you fly with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines!
