CHICAGO, Jan 19 (Reuters) - American Airlines' wholly-owned regional subsidiary PSA Airlines plans to resume new pilot hiring this year, according to a memo seen by Reuters, a positive sign for an industry that was ravaged last year by the coronavirus pandemic.
"As we continue to work with American Airlines to identify our flying needs this year, and in combination with recent attrition numbers for our Pilot group, we will be initiating hiring efforts for First Officer team members," Keith Stamper, vice president of PSA's air operations, said in a Jan. 15 memo.
A PSA spokeswoman confirmed the plans, which also include new flight attendant hiring, but said: "We are declining disclosing specific hiring numbers at this time." (Reporting by Tracy Rucinski, Editing by Franklin Paul)
