Airline operators call for urgent recruitment reform protocol in critical sub-sector of aviation.

Written by on June 1, 2022

Airline operators have called for an urgent reform in the recruitment protocol to allow more hands into the critical sub-sector of aviation.

The airlines, under the aegis of International Air Transport Association (IATA), on Tuesday, at their ground handling conference, said the sub-sector was due for holistic overhaul to manage the long-term need for a stable talent base.

IATA’s Senior Vice President for Operations, Safety and Security, Nick Careen, who disclosed this, noted that the peak summer travel season was fast-approaching, and that passengers were already experiencing the effects of bottlenecks in getting security clearances for staff at the airport.

In the longer-term, the Association urged the ground handling sector to adopt a stronger talent acquisition strategy, streamline onboarding processes, and develop a more compelling retention proposition.
