Ground Services Workers
Employment in the air transportation industry is expected to grow more slowly than the average through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Commercial air travel has decreased as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the deep economic downturn of 2008, creating less need for airport workers. Passenger and cargo traffic is expected to rebound slowly over the next several years. The DOL predicts that employment opportunities will be good for ground services workers, such as baggage handlers and aircraft cleaners, as a result of high turnover in these occupations.
