Summary

The Airline Hostesses' Association was formed in 1957 when the Victorian Branch was established. Members of the Union were hostesses working for TAA, Ansett and Qantas, plus Ansett subsidiaries Con Air and East West. The name was changed in 1984 to the Australian Flight Attendants' Association when the association combined with the Flight Stewards' Association of Australia (1958 - 1984) to acknowledge the employment of male flight attendants by domestic airlines. In 1992 there was a merger with the Australian International Cabin Crew Association (1984 - 1992). The new organisation became the Flight Attendants Association.
