Covid has grounded over 50% of world airlines pilots: Survey

Jan 29, 2021 07:53 IST

More than half of the world's airline pilots are no longer flying for a living amid the plunge in demand during the coronavirus pandemic, a new survey has found. A poll of nearly 2,600 pilots by UK-based GOOSE Recruitment and industry publication FlightGlobal, released on Thursday, found only 43% were doing the job they had trained for, with 30% unemployed, 17% furloughed and 10% in non-flying roles. The survey also found those that are still flying feel less valued by their employers. Many airlines have instituted permanent pay cut or have temporarily lowered salaries. According to the survey, 82% of unemployed pilots would take a pay cut for a new opportunity.
