Therein lies a fundamental truth: growth demands professionals. It’s true that there are times when greater numbers of cabin crew are hired, and naturally, times when the hiring wave is not as strong.
This is the byproduct of the occasional fluctuation in varying economic cycles and their movements on a global scale. In spite of this, the average line of growth is steadily increasing. There is no doubting the increase in the number of international flights taking off and landing each and every day – and this can only be achieved if there are cabin crew disposed to execute said flights. They allow for an increase in aircraft fleets, hours flown, and also increase the number of passengers and goods transported.
Over the last few years, there have certainly been moments of doubt for licensed pilots waiting for their opportunity for work placement – this may even have included moments of despair. These very same pilots, however, after these moments of doubt and despair, saw and experienced the way in which the job placement they so longed for arrived. Others were hired a lot more quickly, perhaps. The graph explains this situation perfectly. When the line descends or levels out, one must wait. Fear not, though, for then it rises, meaning the moment has arrived – pilots and other cabin crew are in need!
