UPS And UA To Hire More Pilots

Fri Feb 11, 2005 10:43 pm

UPS will hire a total of 300 hundred pilots by the end of this year.
Not sure the total that UA will be bringing on board. I will go look and get back and let everyone know.......But this is a definite good sign for the pilots that were let go from any airline in the last 4 years.

UA is recalling 150 pilots from furlough -- 75 immediately and 75 later this year -- not to increase flying but to cover retirements.

I heard UPS was hiring 100 new pilots in DFW alone. Are they planning on flying more routes or something else?

Any thoughts on this?
