Comair Recalls at Least 110 Furloughed Pilots and Flight Attendants

Comair plans on
recalling at least 70 pilots and 40 flight attendants from furlough because the
Erlanger-based regional carrier will be doing more flying.


The company will
start adding flying hours in June. The Delta Air Lines subsidiary will keep
adding hours and employees gradually from July through November.

“This is
obviously a positive development, and we have already begun preparations to
accommodate this new schedule from a staffing, fleet and maintenance
perspective,” Comair president John Bendoraitis said in a memo to
employees Thursday.

The airline will
start issuing recall letters to crew members starting next week, with the goal
of having the first group of pilots flying by July.
