Sample cover letter for Internship position at Ryan Air


Flight attendant

I would like to briefly demonstrate my interest in the available position of Air stewardess/Steward, currently available with British Airways.

I was informed about the opening via (name of a mutual contact or existing staff member etc.) who suggested I apply for the job.

I have (5) years experience (as check in staff/in the offices of X company etc.) and have from the beginning always dreamt of being able to be up in the air and serve.

I love to travel, enjoy communicating with and meeting new people, long journeys do not bother me. Discovering the different cities around the world is what I would so much look forward to after a long shift on board. I love travel and this job gives me the ability to see different places all within a very short space of time.

I love languages and am fluent in (list the languages that you speak), making travel to the countries where those languages are spoken perfect for me, being able to efficiently communicate with the local passengers and assist them as best as I can whatever the situation.

I am extremely conscientious, responsible and a fast learner with strong attention to detail, all things that I believe are required for this intense yet highly satisfying job.

Working to schedules can be very demanding, often tight and changing at the last minute, however, I enjoy spontaneity and the excitement of travel will always entice me to pack my bags at a second's notice.

I am aware that due to the intense nature of the job, strong bonds of friendship are quickly formed. This is an aspect of the travel industry that I enjoy and respect. I am proud to have the reputation among my current co-workers as someone who is reliable, enjoys driving and can be counted upon.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet in person and interview for the position formally. I believe face-to-face is always best and I am sure that when you meet me that you will agree that I would be a welcome addition to your already dedicated team.
