Piedmont Offering Steep Retention Bonuses

PSA Airlines and Envoy Air Follow Suit

Piedmont Airlines is offering captains and upgrading first officers a $30,000 bonus, and up to $180,000 in retention bonuses. The program was created alongside the Air Line Pilot Association to ensure stability for pilots in an industry that is still battling the uncertainty of the COVID pandemic.

PSA Airlines and Envoy Air are also offering up to  $150,000 in potential earnings.

Piedmont’s new retention programs, Elevate Pilot Careers, is offering current and new flight crew members a generous bonus for committing to the company. 

"Piedmont is making an enormous investment in our business and our pilot group. This is an important step in building a post-pandemic, sustainable airline that can thrive well into the future," said Piedmont CEO Eric Morgan. 

Current employees can look forward to a large payout, starting at $30,000 for all Captains and $30,000 for First Officers who upgrade to Captain. Piedmont pilots hired at American either through Piedmont's flow program or outside the flow will receive $70,000. 

Piedmont says that all pilots hired are guaranteed a job at American after one year of service without needing to interview, known as a flow. Monthly eligible pilots can opt in or out of the flow and employees with the most seniority fly with American. Using this system most pilots end up at American within five years.

"Piedmont pilots have delivered excellent performance throughout the pandemic, consistently leading all other regionals in the American Airlines regional partner portfolio. Their service to Piedmont and our customers in this difficult time has allowed us to maintain our flying and step up to fly additional routes when travel demand increases. We are proud to watch them continue their careers at American as we welcome a new group of pilots to Piedmont to begin their journey," said Piedmont's vice president of flight operations, Steve Keefer.
