Washington Boeing plans to hire 10,000 workers this year as the airline industry recovers from the peak of the coronavirus pandemic. In some sectors, however, jobs would be cut, said the Airbus rival on Friday.

The US aircraft manufacturer based in the state of Virginia employed 156,000 people at the end of last year, around 14,000 more than at the end of the previous year. The hires would bring Boeing closer to its pre-pandemic job count, which was 161,000 at the end of 2019. The group plans to push deliveries of the 737 MAX and 787 this year.
