US Airways to Add 500 Crew Positions Next Year

US Airways to Add 500 Crew Members (Image: Wikimedia)On Monday, US Airways said it will add 500 flight attendants and pilots next year mostly to cover planned retirements and attrition.


The airline will provide jobs to laid off workers first and then hire from outside of the company. The plan is to fill 420 flight attendant openings and 80 pilot positions.


After the recall, the airline will have as many as 100 pilots on leave but no more flight attendants on that list.


When the procedure is complete, US Airways will have around 4,970 active pilots and 7,300 active flight attendants.


US Airways plans to add international seats next year but keep domestic numbers as is.


Most of the new and returning employees will be flying by July.
