Compass Airlines reaches agreement with pilot union on 2-year contract extension.



Compass Airlines has announced it has reached an agreement with its pilot group to extend the pilots' Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) through 2022, the company said.

The extension contains a number of pay and quality of life improvements, while simultaneously allowing for new initiatives that will improve Compass's ability to recruit pilots.

Complementing Compass's competitive First Officer compensation are increases for Captains that will allow Compass to remain among the leaders in Captain pay among comparable regional carriers. Additionally, the extension includes an agreement to allow new hire First Officers with previous 121 experience to carry over longevity from their previous carrier, as well as the ability to offer new hire pilots a signing bonus. These improvements will allow greater responsiveness to market conditions in a competitive market for attracting pilots.

Compass Airlines serves over 6.5 million passengers a year, with approximately 280 daily flights providing service to more than 40 cities in North America. Compass operates a fleet of Embraer 175 aircraft on behalf of American Airlines (as American Eagle) and Delta Air Lines (as Delta Connection). Headquartered in Minneapolis, Compass has crew bases in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Seattle.
