Professionals believe statistics don’t lie. This has been proven in the past with loads of predictions coming real. Judging by this, the many forecasts signaling the scarcity of workers in the nearest future (from now till 2035) especially in the aviation world should only be a message of preparedness for the expected booming employment opportunities in the sector, rather being taken with levity. It is understandable that nations of the world are coming up with policies and strategies to combat unemployment menace little or much as they may be affected, but the ceaseless growth and development rocking the aviation world is surfacing as a cheap solution to the problem for the ones that have both its private and public authorities investing in the sector. This is equally understood by Meccti and therefore, the popular recruitment agency seeks to enlighten the global populace about the relevant opportunities the recent development in the sector could mean to them, especially in their job hunting exercise.
In the latest airline jobs prediction by the U.S Jetmaker, that which is the first time cabin crews would be added to its forecast in seven years of annual forecast, recruitment of flight attendants is expected to be on a rocket and record high of as much as 814,000 new entrants expected to join the aviation workforce. Previous suggestions by Boeing also clarifies similar upsurge in the numbers of workers expected to join the workforce in the next 20 years, stressing a potential demand for as much as 679,000 airline technicians and 617,000 pilots. This numerical representation is reportedly an 11 percent rise on the previous expectations as contained in their forecasts for the technician and pilots categories.
The increase in workforce demand is expectedly consequent of the development in the aviation world which features a recent order of aircrafts worth hundreds of billions of dollars. This is expected to greatly influence income boost and travel statistics, thus creating vacancies for pilots, technicians and cabin crews. The Asia Pacific particularly would be needing the chunk of the new pilots. The Asia continent is set to benefit most in the development because most of the ordered aircraft will be headed for it, thus creating spaces for 40 percent of the new pilots’ entries to surpass Europe (17%) and North American (18%) levels combined. The Middle East is set to scoop up to 10 percent of the remaining loads while the rest of the world would be sharing the remaining 15 percent.
The three largest beneficiary of the potential abundance is expected to be the largest generators of new airlines jobs soonest, most complementarily because of the wave of retirements that are meant to hit them still. This is as reported by The Boeing’s Vice President for Flight Services, Sherry Carbary. The foreseen recruitments are also expected to determine the success of airline operation in the coming years as that is most dependent on crew cabins, technicians and pilots. It is thus believed that these statistical details would assist aviation companies in planning a bright economic and operational future for their businesses as well as analyze the Current Market Outlook (CMO) to forecast a better operational success for their firms.
Another driver behind the supposed increase in the number of airline jobs are consequent of incoming airplanes which would heighten passengers’ jet families experience via high rates of utilization abilities, multiple flight capacities and multiple teams of workers recruitabilities, with numbers varying from airlines to airlines, cities to cities, countries to countries and continents to continents depending on business model chains and regulatory requirements. Overall and undoubtedly, the high expectation in the sector is sure to set the pace for prospective job seekers for a realization that aviation is a fertile summit for their pursuits, and perhaps fulfillment.
