IMG_2191Mesa Airlines, which operates regional flights for American Airlines and United Airlines, and its pilots union announced that the two had reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.

The tentative agreement comes three months after the pilots requested mediation services from the National Mediation Board and six years after negotiations had begun.

The pilots are represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, the world’s largest pilot union.

If approved, the new contract will provide for an increase in salary and vacation time accrual as well as improved retirement benefits.

The union was able “to secure advances in virtually all areas of our contract,” said Capt. Andy Hughes, chairman of the ALPA Mesa Air Group union.

Mesa Airlines operates American Eagle flights from hubs in Phoenix and Dallas/Fort Worth and United Express flights from Washington Dulles and Houston.
