Korean Air To Boost Pilot Hiring 40 Percent In 2000
Korean Air plans to hire 240 new pilots this year under a massive recruitment program to reform its operations. Of the 240 new hires, 130 will be expatriate captains from the "world's leading airlines" who will join 138 expatriates that currently fly with the airline. The remaining 110 pilots will come from Korea Aviation University, the military and Korean Air's Cheju Flying School. The number of pilots to be hired represents a 40% increase from 1999, when the carrier admitted 173 new pilots.
