Asia-Pacific region to lead aircraft and workforce demand over the next 20 years

Chicago, Illinois - Boeing predicts that 17,000 new commercial aircraft and 244,000 pilots will be required in the Asia-Pacific region over the next 20 years.

If technicians and flight attendants added, the region will account for one-third of the global workforce demand in the industry, Boeing remarks in its 2019 Pilot and Technician Outlook.

According to Boeing's projection, the demand for commercial pilots in China will be most significant with 124,000 pilots representing nearly 20 percent of the global demand.

China will also drive demand for technicians and flight attendants in the same period with 124,000 technicians and 150,000 cabin crew members.

Boeing also notes that airlines globally will need 44,000 new aircraft over the next 20 years.
