Hawaiian Airline Increases Incentives to Recruit Pilots as Demand Recovery Quicker than Expected
Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaii’s largest airline, is seeking pilots as it copes up with the increased demand and gets back on pre pandemic levels. The airline is offering higher pay and a US$10,000 sign on bonus for pilots as part of its latest recruitment drive as it mentions that the state is not training as many pilots as required by the industry.
“People were surprised by how quickly air traffic rebounded after some of the Covid numbers dropped and people started choosing to go to Hawaii. It’s going to take a lot of husting from our local airlines to have a sufficient number of pilots this season,” said Peter Forman, aviation expert, as cited by KITV4. “The state of Hawaii is not training nearly as many pilots as before and that’s the best source for pilots at Hawaiian Airlines because those pilots want to live on Hawaii. The best option is to focus on people who grew up in Hawaii.”
