Delta plans to rent greater than 1,000 pilots by subsequent summer time as journey demand will increase

Delta Air Lines aircraft are on the ground during the coronavirus.

Delta Air Lines announced Monday that it expects to hire more than 1,000 pilots by next summer, the latest move by an airline to meet a rebound in travel demand.

Delta said in April it would start hiring just 75 pilots when bookings pick up.

“This is exciting news for both pilots looking to join Delta and those of you who are already on the seniority list as it means career opportunities as we recover, planned retirement of pilots and the position for network expansion is taken into account, “said John Laughter, head of operations, said in a memo seen by CNBC.
