Asia Pacific Region Sees Greatest Demand for Commercial Airline Personnel

Boeing reports that the Asia Pacific region continues to drive global demand for commercial pilots, technicians and cabin crew. The region accounts for more than one-third of anticipated global demand or 816,000 total new commercial aviation personnel over the next 20 years.

“Demand for personnel in the Asia Pacific region remains significant, and we expect this trend to continue,” said Keith Cooper, vice president of Training & Professional Services for Boeing Global Services. “Boeing supports the full lifecycle of an aircraft to help make sure that our customers have qualified personnel to fly, maintain and staff them.”  

The 2019 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook is an industry forecast of new aviation personnel demand. It is closely tied to projections for new aeroplane deliveries around the globe, and also takes into account annual aircraft utilization rates, crewing requirements by region and regulatory requirements. Over the next 20 years, airlines around the world will need 44,000 new aeroplanes, with more than 17,000, or 39%, of those aeroplanes delivered to the Asia Pacific region.
