Airlines UK Chief: Airline Sector has a Serious Problem with Recruitment

Airlines UK (Trade Union of Airlines in the United Kingdom) Chief, Tim Alderslade, during a panel debate at Advantage Travel Partnership’s conference in Madeira, said that the airline sector has ‘serious problem’ trying to recruit more staff. Alderslade says that labor is a big issue as UK airlines tries to cope with the increasing demand.

“There’s a huge number of challenges and labour will be a real issue moving forward, and not just in the short term. It’s going to be a difficult few months as the labour just isn’t there, and it will take a number of years to get back to where we were,” said Alderslade.

Alderslade emphasized, referring to the recruitment aspect, that it’s going to be a “really difficult few years ahead” if the sector doesn’t get it right.

“There’s a big conversation going on at the moment with government on how we can get people who want to come into the industry quicker,” added Alderslade.
