Safran, an aircraft engine manufacturer, says the hardest of the COVID-19 aircraft slowdown came to an end and expects to hire 12,000 employees globally during the year to rebuild its capacity, according to its CEO.
“Airline industry is being resumed today; applications are strong, and the pace is picking up. The worst has passed us by. “I’m quite sure,” Figaro Olivier Andries stated.
“We are recovering from a period of decline, and we are about to rebuild our workforce.” “It is planned to recruit 12,000 individuals in 2022, including 3,000 of them in France,” he stated.
Safran is the aircraft industry’s third-largest supplier, producing engines for Airbus and Boeing aircraft with General Dynamics.
When the COVID-19 epidemic exploded, Safran, along with most other players in the sector, downsized capacity and some workspace in response to a sharp decline in airline applications.
