NACE 2002 - 62 Air transport

Employment in air transport accounts for roughly 0.2% of total employment in the Czech economy, which is about the same as in developed countries. Overall, the importance of transport is increasing and the next couple of years are likely to see a growth in employment figures. This trend will be supported by an expected enlargement of airport capacity. The European Union expects that the volume of air transport should double between 2008 and 2020. This will affect the relevant segment of the labour market in the CR. Air transport will see a trend of further growth in cargo shipping and a widening range of related logistical services. The number of passengers will increase both thanks to high income levels of households (more people will use air transport for holiday purposes), and thanks to a higher intensity of international trade.

Demand for pilots, aircraft engineers and service technicians will slightly grow. The growth will be smaller as regards technical occupations (mechanics, repairmen) due to technological development and the related growth in labour productivity. However, the demand for technical staff specialising in electronics, electrical engineering and mechanics will be very high in the economy in general, and this particular area is expected to face the most severe shortages. There will also be a minimum increase in the number of jobs for operators and administration workers, since technological advancement will increase labour productivity (a further expansion in on-line booking and purchasing of air tickets, and automated check-in procedures). The level of ICT intensity in the industry will further increase and so will demand for IT specialists. There will also continue to be high demand for lower-skilled workers (operation, handling of luggage, etc.).
