Pinnacle Airlines, the carrier that recently announced it's relocating to the Twin Cities from Memphis, is aiming to fill about 350 jobs, including 100 flight attendents.
WCCO reports the company is currently in the process of hiring. Several applicants showed up for a recruiting fair Friday.
See their website for job openings.
A huge financial incentive factored into the move to Minnesota. Pinnacle received $550,000 from the state of Minnesota in the form of a “forgivable” loan if the carrier moved 200 jobs to the state within two years of the move.
The company is currently in Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but is expected to become a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines when it emerges from bankruptcy protection.
Pinnacle will move into a vacant space leased by Delta at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
