Airbus intends to hire more than 13,000 people worldwide this year, a figure equivalent to that of 2022, and 7,000 will be new jobs to respond to its industrial program acceleration plans, which will contribute to an increase in its workforce.

The European group explained that 9,000 of those hires will be made in the Old Continent and the rest in other parts of the world, according to a statement released Thursday.

The company will not specify its needs by country until after the presentation of its financial results on February 16. In Spain, some 12,000 people are part of its workforce. At the end of 2021, Airbus’ global workforce was 126,900 people, and that figure has already surpassed the 130,000 mark, reported EFE.
