Cabin Crew Outlook: 2017 - 2036

As airlines continue to expand flight routes, grow their fleet, and transition to airplanes with higher seat capacity, an increasing number of cabin crew will be needed to ensure the safety and comfort of passengers. With a focus on operational improvements, many regional markets have also updated regulations to require a greater number of cabin crew per aircraft.

Over the next 20 years, the largest projected growth in cabin crew demand is in the Asia Pacific region, with a requirement for 308,000 new cabin crew. Europe will require 173,000, North America 154,000, Middle East 96,000, Latin America 52,000, Africa 28,00, and CIS / Russia 28,000.
