Pilots at charter airline Omni Air International reached a new tentative agreement with the company on February 28, the company said.
The agreement includes major increases in pay that make Omni´s starting first officer salaries the highest in the US airline industry.
The pilots are represented by the Airline Professionals Association Teamsters Local 1224 and have been in negotiations with the company for almost two and a half years.
The contract addresses longstanding concerns about compensation; many Omni pilots operating under the agreement will see their pay more than double during its four-year term. The contract also includes major increases in issues related to travel, lodging and benefits, a major victory for pilots at Omni.
