Could you have a future job in aviation? Aviation company, Boeing, forecasts a major increase in jobs in the airline industry.
Boeing expects airlines around the world to hire nearly 815,000 flight attendants. For the first time in 7 years, “cabin crew members” have been added to the job forecast. In the next 20 years, Boeing predicts that nearly 700,000 technicians, and over 600,000 pilots will be needed. Since last year’s predictions, there was an 11% increase in airline careers.
According to the aviation company, the Asia-Pacific region ranks number one, with the highest amount of new jobs created. On the other hand, “North America and Europe are also large generators of new airline jobs, due to an upcoming wave of retirements.”
“Single aisle” jets, are jets that experience high rates of operation. In a single day, these jets fly multiple flights. This requires multiple teams of pilots and flight attendants.
The projected job increase could change, but Boeing believes it will most likely rise.
