نزوح الموظفين الشباب يغذي أزمة الطيران

By Ninian Carter

September 7, 2022 - أزمة الطيران في أوروبا يدفعها جزئياً نزوح العمال الذين تقل أعمارهم عن 40 عاماً، الذين تركوا قطاع الطيران خلال جائحة كوفيد19-.

Europe’s summer aviation disruption has been impacted by a lack of staff, many of whom quit the industry during the Covid-19 pandemic, when commercial flights all but stopped.

Data from Eurostat, shows that the decline in staffing numbers is most acute among those aged under 40, with only 37% of air transport workers in Q1 2022 being in that age group.

Compare this to Q1 2020, just as the pandemic was taking hold, when 45% of staff were aged 15-39 years old.

However, looking even further back shows that the lack of younger employees cannot be blamed solely on the pandemic, as in Q3 2010, the ratio of those aged under 40 to those aged above, was 50/50.

Clearly, airlines and airports have a hard task ahead of them to recruit new workers into an industry where commuting distances are often lengthy, hours are unsociable, pay is modest and the security screening of applicants so time-consuming that many applicants simply accept other jobs midway through the process.
