UPS to Hire 200 Pilots

Share this article:
United Parcel Service, Atlanta, said yesterday that it will hire 200 pilots to support the growth and expansion of its air business.


The announcement brings the number of UPS' new pilot hires to 300 when combined with the 100 the company announced in October. The company expects to complete its hiring process by the end of the year.


UPS said its decision to hire additional pilots is driven by several factors including attrition and recent aircraft acquisitions.


UPS expects delivery of 13 A300s and 11 MD-11 aircraft during the next two years. The company also recently announced the acquisition of 10 Airbus A380s, which it plans to begin flying in 2009.
