• As part of a competitive procedure, 11 entities of public benefit have been selected out of a total of 108 applicants
  • ENAIRE’s CEO, Ángel Luis Arias, noted that “the number of beneficiaries is estimated to be over 1,000, with 534 placements, some of them in the aviation sector”
  • ENAIRE is offering these subsidies for the second year in a row, which brings the total to 1.4 million euros

In response to ENAIRE’s 2021 call for subsidies to promote job placement and job creation activities for individuals with disabilities, published on 29 April, the national air navigation service provider received 108 applications.

This call will involve granting nearly 700,000 euros (690,228 euros) to 11 entities of public benefit that, after being selected through a competitive procedure, will be used to employ people with disabilities, in accordance with
the objectives set out in their projects.

ENAIRE’s CEO, Ángel Luis Arias, thanked CERMI for its presence and involvement, and the entities that will receive the grants from the 2021 call, “which are estimated to reach over 1,000 beneficiaries, with 534 placements, some of them in the aviation sector”.

Along with ENAIRE’s call in 2019, in the past two years the entity has allocated a total of 1.4 million euros to promote the self-reliance and independence of disabled people by integrating them into the labour market. Priority was given to those initiatives that created jobs in the aeronautical sector, as well as to those applicants that exhibited solvency, experience and a track record in the field of integrating people with disabilities into the workplace.

The winning projects in this call will be implemented in every part of the country (Community of Madrid, Catalonia, Andalusia, Canary Islands, Basque Country, Murcia, Balearic Islands and Aragon) and take into account individuals with different types of disabilities (mental, sensory, intellectual, physical, organic, others), who will be more employable thanks to said projects.
