United says it will recall close to 600 furloughed pilots

There will be no more furloughed pilots at United Airlines by the end of the year.

The carrier announced on Thursday morning that it will recall about 600 pilots to address "future staffing needs." After the recall, there will be no more pilots on furlough, United said.

"We look forward to welcoming back our co-workers as we complete work to integrate all of our pilots into a single work group," said United senior vice president of operations Howard Attarian in a statement.

The Chicago-based carrier, which combined with Continental Airlines in 2010, has more than 12,000 pilots.

American Airlines recalled of its pilots who had been furloughed earlier this year.
