After Lufthansa, the Frankfurt airport operator Fraport and German air traffic control also go in search of new staff. The companies encounter different problems, as the bosses Stefan Schulte and Arndt Schoenemann reported on Tuesday evening in Frankfurt.
Basically, both companies expect further growth of air traffic after the Corona shock for the coming year. While the DFS is out of around 90 percent of the pre-crisis level from 2019, Schulte spoke of "between 85 and 100 percent".air traffic on business trips remains at a lower level
The Fraport boss referred to a considerable need to catch up, among other things, because air traffic in Germany has developed weaker in the current year than in many other countries. "We ran five percentage points weaker this year when it was the case in Paris in London or Amsterdam," says Schulte.
Airport on problematic personnel search

The airport is looking for personnel.
It is 2023 to recover and consolidate market shares. After the job cuts in the Corona crisis, Fraport, according to Schultes, started with highly volume new settings in April 2021. However, it was lacking in qualified forces, so that you are now also a lot of school and qualify. After around 1800 new people this year, around 1,000 people will be hired in the coming year, Schulte announced.High requirements for air traffic controllers
have also been obtained in Southeast Europe and Southwest Europe. The entrances would also be opposite. "We need the best of the best," said air traffic control chief Schoenemann about the requirements for future air traffic controllers. The number of applicants is currently declining who first have to face a tough selection process at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). In contrast to previous years, around a quarter of the applicants that have already been approved was not taken for the test. In the past, the diarrhea was constant 95 percent, so that ultimately only every 20th applicant was allowed to start the three -year pilot training. As in the current year, the DFS also plans to hire 136 new pilot students with full capacity in 2023.
The federal air traffic control also expects 2023 strong additional traffic in German airspace. The reason is the Ukraine War in particular, which continues to restrict over-flight opportunities via Poland and, on the other hand, makes numerous military flights necessary over Germany for which civil traffic must be redirected.
