NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Boeing says the airline industry will need to hire more than one million workers over the next 20 years to prepare for a wave of 30,000 new aircraft.
The airlines will need to hire 466,650 pilots and 596,500 maintenance crew workers between 2010 and 2029, the aircraft maker said Thursday.
That means the industry will need an average of 23,300 new pilots and 30,000 maintenance workers annually from now until 2029, the company said.
"Our challenge is adapting our training to engage the future generation of people who will fly and maintain the more than 30,000 airplanes that will be delivered by 2029," said Roei Ganzarski, chief customer officer for Boeing Training & Flight Services, in a statement.
The largest need for new personnel is in the Asia-Pacific region, where about 180,000 pilots and 220,000 maintenance workers will be required, the company said.
