Delta Air Lines plans to hire more than 1,300 pilots in 2020, which the company said is its largest round of hiring in a single year in more than two decades.
Atlanta-based Delta said it will be hiring pilots for crew bases in Atlanta, New York, Minneapolis, Detroit, Seattle and elsewhere.
The airline said it’s part of a broader effort to hire more than 8,000 pilots over the next decade as pilots retire, and as the company grows with a record number of customers.
Delta also plans to hire at least 2,500 flight attendants in 2020, the highest in the airline’s 95-year history.
