New Opportunities for Pilots
Saturday, August 16, 2008
Low-cost U.S. carriers are being presented with a new market opportunity, as some of the major airlines, such as Delta and United, reduce service to some cities. Low-cost carriers are typically hungry for these new chances created by the larger airlines.
For example, Allegiant Airlines sees competitors' capacity cuts as the silver lining of fuel price increases. The airline plans to open new routes to popular destination Las Vegas, where US Airways has just decreased flights. AirTran Airways also announced last month that it will increase its service to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, following Midwest Air's capacity reduction there. One of AirTan's new Milwaukee flights, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is a direct replacement of a Midwest flight that was cut.
For new pilots -- or if you are considering flight training and a career as an airline pilot -- this can be good news. New pilots with minimum flight time are most often first hired by regional and low-cost carriers, so as these carriers expand, so do the opportunities for new pilots. You could be an airline pilot very soon. Check out www.pea for more information -- you could be wearing the uniform of a student pilot as soon as next month!
