Boeing and Airbus are looking for highly skilled and low cost engineers in India. The reason behind this is that the demand for aircraft has increased and there has been a major increase in their manufacturing presence in the world’s fifth largest economy. Airbus plans to hire 1,000 people in India this year. The company will employ 13,000 people worldwide.
Increase in number of employees every year
Boeing and its suppliers already have about 18,000 workers in the country. Its workforce is growing by about 1,500 every year. Salil Gupte, India head of the US jet maker, gave this information in an interview to Bloomberg News.
About 1.5 million engineering students are graduating every year in India. In this situation, it has become an excellent source of talent for the country’s aircraft manufacturers. These airline companies are getting record orders as the traffic congestion has increased again after the corona epidemic. Boeing can hire an engineer in Bengaluru, India’s southern technology hub, at just seven percent the cost of a place like Seattle. This data is according to salary data compiler Glassdoor.

Air travel was banned in the country for months during the Covid-19 pandemic. Then when aviation started, the aviation sector seems to have come out completely. In December, a record was set for the number of daily domestic air passengers, but this record was also broken in February. According to media reports, 4,44,845 air passengers flew in the country on February 19. On February 12 this number was 4,37,800. Whereas in December, on 24th, a record number of 4,35,500 was recorded.
A few days ago, Air India placed an order for the purchase of 470 aircraft. After this, the country’s largest airline IndiGo (IndiGo) also received news of ordering 500 aircraft. This order is the largest ever in the aviation industry worldwide.
