US Airline CEO Says It Would Take Up To Three Years to Get Enough Pilots

04th Aug 2022

American Airlines CEO Robert Isom told investors that it would take up to three years for regional airlines to fully cope with the ongoing nationwide pilot shortage.

“From a regional perspective, it’s just going to take a little bit longer than that, maybe 2 or 3 years, to kind of get the supply chain for pilots back to where we need it to be,” said Isom.

He said that restoring flight capacity across main routes will take about a year as such is ‘dependent on the supply chains of aircraft manufacturers and ultimately, pilot supply to get all back in sync’.
