Airline Hiring Boom Through 2007

This week, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) predicted that 2007 will be a record year for airlines due to cost cutting measures implemented recently by a majority of the global carriers.

This translates into more aggressive hiring by both US and overseas airlines. We are already seeing hiring levels increasing at many airlines and we expect these levels to steadily increase through 2006 and 2007.

Right now, lists hiring details on 32 airlines that are either actively hiring flight attendants or accepting resumes in anticipation of future hiring.

IATA expects global airlines to post a profit of over $7.2 billion, the highest profit level since before the 9/11 attacks. This prediction, however, is dependent upon several factors, including oil price stability, bird flu in humans and airline security breaches.

Overall, we are optimistic about global airline future hiring needs and expect a hiring boom through 2007.
