31 May is ‘World Cabin Crew Appreciation Day,’ a celebration for all flight attendants and cabin crew (also known as ‘International Flight Attendants Day’).
International Cabin Crew Day has been celebrated around the world since at least 2015.
It was first started by a Canadian flight attendant union to highlight the role of cabin crew and see them recognized for their hard work and dedication to their profession.
Cabin crew are trained for weeks to respond to countless situations on board. They are also fire fighters, nurses, police officers, crowd controllers, mental health first-aiders and more. In one word they are safety professionals.
Today is a chance to celebrate and thank all cabin crew represented by the IAM and other unions across North America. You make our lives safer.
The IAM represents cabin crew at Wasaya Airlines.
