65,000 to apply for 1,000 Delta jobs

Atlanta: Delta Air Lines Inc, the world’s largest carrier, said it anticipates getting about 65,000 applications for its 1,000 airport job openings, as millions of Americans continue to look for work.

The airline is hiring workers at its 25 biggest US airports to help with planes that are flying with near-record percentages of seats filled, and to cope with weather disruptions, chief executive Richard Anderson said in a weekly recorded message to employees. The company often gets “many multiples” of applications when it has job openings, he said. Delta has about 81,000 employees and previously said it plans to hire about 240 pilots.
