Delta Bringing Back 400 Pilots This Summer
DELTA IS BRINGING BACK 400 PILOTS AS A SIGN OF OPTIMISM THAT TRAVEL DEMAND WILL INCREASE AS COVID VACCINATIONS ROLL OUT
(CNN) – A sign of optimism for the air travel industry.
Delta says it will return 400 pilots this summer to full active status.
In a memo last week, the airline’s senior vice president of operations said the company is optimistic that travel demand will go up as more people get vaccinated from COVID.
He added that the plan is “well-ahead” the company’s original estimate.
Delta declined to comment about future flight capacity or schedule planning.
