Ground Services Workers

Overall employment in the air transportation industry is expected to decline through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Commercial air travel has slowed as a result of the economic downturn that began in 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.
