Vistara offers pilots opportunity to fly Scoot aircraft overseas

Mumbai: To achieve synergies and resource optimisation within the group airlines, full-service carrier Vistara is sending its pilots to fly budget airline Scoot overseas. Scoot, which is facing a shortage of pilots, is a subsidiary of Singapore International Airlines. Singapore Airlines holds 49% stake in Vistara with the balance held by the Tata group.

In a mail addressed to its first officers on August 21, Vistara said that there are a limited opportunities that the airline has identified, keeping in mind the “overall value proposition of resources mobilisation across Vistara and SIA Group”.

Vistara is offering its younger pilots the chance to fly the Airbus A320 fleet for Scoot and gain international experience. Vistara has a total of 3,000 employees but it did not share the total number of pilots on its roll. The pilots who will go to Scoot will be on a kind of deputation since their continuity of service, seniority etc will be maintained with Vistara whenever they return to it.
