Vistara To Soon Hire Male Cabin Crew Members

Mumbai: Tata-SIA-run Vistara, which plans to spread its wings to the international skies from the next year, will soon have a mix of female and male cabin crew on its flights.

At present the airline employs female members for various jobs in the cabin. But in a policy shift, it has decided to hire male crew members too, an airline official said.

As much as 20-25 per cent of the cabin crew will be male members, the official said.

"As an equal-opportunity employer, it has always been part of our plans to have mixed cabin crew," he told PTI. Vistara currently employs around 1,800 people to carry out its pan-India flight operations from across 21 domestic airports.

Of this, around 500 are cabin crew.

Besides Vistara, budget carrier IndiGo is the only other domestic carrier which recruits only female members for cabin crew jobs.


All other airlines including Air India, Jet Airways and SpiceJet have mixed cabin crew.

Vistara has started the process of hiring male cabin crew which is expected to be completed by March. "We plan to deploy them into flying from April onwards," the official said.
