Published on : Tuesday, August 2, 2016

BoeingAccording to the estimates released by Boeing, the airlines of the world would be hiring 8,14,000 flight attendants, 6,17,000 pilots and 6,79,000 technicians within the following 20 years. For the very first time, cabin-crew members have been added to the forecast issued by the jetmaker.


The estimates of Boeing for pilots and technicians have risen by 11% if it is compared to the last year.


Boeing has predicted that the maximum jobs would be created in the Asia-Pacific region. However, it has also said that new jobs would also be generated in the regions of Europe and North America, triggered by a series of retirements, as per Sherry Carbary, vice president, flight services, Boeing.


Carbary also added that Boeing generally does not train cabin crew just like it trains pilots and technicians. However, he also said that the industry can utilize these numbers for the purpose of planning.


This report that is named ‘Pilot and Technician Outlook’, comes several years after Boeing fixed its Current Market Outlook.


The CMO OF Boeing has decided to sell as many as 39,620 planes within the next 20 years following the personnel forecast.


One of the main propellants behind the increase in job opportunities is that the largest number of airplanes that are expected to be offered are the ‘single aisle jets’. These jets comprise the Airbus 320 and Boeing 737. These are the jets that require many teams of flight attendants and pilots in a single day.


However, the exact numbers vary between different airlines, depending on the regulatory requirements and business models.
