Industry Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that job growth in the airline industry will experience little or no growth through 2024. The recent economic recession slowed the growth that this industry had experienced in the mid-2000s, but the economy has been strengthening the past few years and the employment outlook is brighter for some areas of the airlines industry. There should be favorable opportunities in the realm of regional and low-cost carriers, and in general aviation. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts a growing demand for international travel, especially for businesses that are venturing into Asian markets. This demand will create job opportunities for pilots, flight attendants, and flight engineers. A marked growth in the world's population should also mean a rising number of passengers and a subsequent demand for more flights. Pilots for cargo carriers will also be in great demand as more materials are shipped around the world on a daily basis, and as service models such as just-in-time delivery require expedited shipment.
