We have recently announced two new crew domiciles that will be opening in 2018 in Louisville (SDF) and Atlanta (ATL). The Louisville base is intended to attract CRJ pilots while the Atlanta base will help us pursue EJet pilots. The additional crew domicile in Atlanta is in response to our expansion of flying with United Airlines. We currently have crew domiciles in Phoenix (PHX), Dallas (DFW), Houston (IAH), and Washington Dulles (IAD). We plan on opening the Louisville crew domicile in early 2018. The Atlanta crew domicile has an opening date of June 2018.
“We are delighted to add Atlanta to our list of domiciles. We currently have a significant number of crew members who live in the Atlanta metro area who will likely find this new base attractive. In addition, we believe this new domicile will help us recruit high quality pilot and flight attendant applicants for our continued expansion,” said Jonathan Ornstein, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We will continue to explore options for additional domiciles, and hope to announce new crew bases in 2018.”
At the end of this year, we are currently looking at approximately 3,100 employees with plans to hire an additional 1,000 in the next two years.
