ENAIRE announces 90 openings for air traffic controllers


Spain’s Official State Gazette (BOE) has published a call for 90 new air traffic controllers for ENAIRE, the country’s air navigation service provider.

The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and the Urban Agenda is making an effort, through ENAIRE, to provide the air traffic manager with the human resources it needs to ensure that air traffic can continue to grow safely and efficiently in coming years.

According to the forecasts of EUROCONTROL, the European organisation for air navigation safety, air traffic in Spain will recover faster than expected a year ago, following the crisis in the aviation sector prompted by COVID-19. Moreover, forecasts for coming years confirm that traffic will not only recover, but surpass the levels of 2019.

In the words of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda Minister Raquel Sánchez, who spoke on 11 November, this call “is on top of all the measures that the Government is putting in place to recover key sectors”. As a result, ENAIRE has resumed its pre-COVID plan to hire new air traffic controllers.

The openings will be announced on ENAIRE’s website and the deadline for submitting applications will be 23:59 CET on 15 December.
