Delta Air Lines looking for over a thousand new aircraft pilots
American carrier recruiting campaign
Almost two percentage points earned on the stock market and just under $ 46 of economic value for what concerns the equities. These are the financial consequences of the recruiting plan of the air carrier Delta Air Lines, which intends to sign more than a thousand pilots by next summer. At the basis of the program is the belief that travel volumes will increase until they return to the levels prior to the coronavirus pandemic, therefore 2019. The optimism also concerns other key figures. For example, the American company expects a pre-tax profit in the second half of 2021, therefore in the period from January 1st to June 30th of this year; in this way they would compensate for the enormous losses of a year ago due to the health emergency. Importantly, June 20 saw the highest number of travelers in the United States, 2.1 million to be exact, since the start of the pandemic in March 2020. Last April Delta was very confident about the future that we are looming ahead.
According to the CEO Ed Bastian, in fact, the return to profitability could be possible thanks to the progressive increase in domestic air connections after a very long decline. March was a month characterized by positive daily cash-flow, a figure that the manager emphasized further because it was achieved with the central seat block still in effect and a low level of business and international travel.
