In a move reflecting the recovering business of health of airlines, the pilots union for Continental Airlines said Friday that the carrier plans to recall more than 100 furloughed pilots over the next 18 months.
Capt. Jay Pierce, chairman of Continental’s pilot unit of the Air Line Pilots Association, credited growing passenger traffic and anticipated aircraft deliveries for the additional work.

Continental Airlines furloughed 147 pilots in September 2008; 15  were recalled this year. The recalled pilots return for training sometime in the fourth quarter.

No one from Continental was available for comment.
