Today, PSA Airlines reached agreement with its pilot union to dramatically improve and increase its pilot flow-through program to American Airlines. This agreement will almost double the current number of pilots flowing to American, culminating in nearly 100 pilots flowing per year. The agreement affords PSA pilots a career path directly to American through a seniority-based flow system.

“We are pleased that our pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association International, have voted in favor of this improved flow agreement,” said Michael Scrobola, Vice President of Flight Operations for PSA Airlines. “This agreement provides pilots who join PSA a guaranteed career path to the world’s largest airline, American.”

Captain Jason McConnell, Master Chairman representing the pilots at PSA Airlines stated, “The direct flow to American Airlines gives PSA pilots valuable career path certainty.”

PSA Airlines will hire more than 1000 pilots in the next two years and continues to be the fastest growing regional airline in the United States.
