Air India Receives More Than 73,750 Applications For Cabin Crew, Pilots In Two Months

Air India, which has embarked on expansion plans, on Thursday said it has received more than 1,752 applications for pilots and 72,000 applications for cabin crew in the last two months.    

The loss-making carrier, taken over by Tata group in January this year, has also received more than 25,000 applications in a little over a week from management postgraduates with three years' experience in ground-based business roles.    

Also, the airline has received more than 2,000 applications for a new tech centre in Kerala for various positions, including developers, architects, cyber security professionals, programme managers and UX visual designers.    

The carrier, which had not recruited in non-operations areas for more than 15 years, is quickly adding talent in all spheres of its business, including for commercial functions, business support services and operations, according to a release.   

"The airline's aggressive expansion plan, which has already seen 17 long-grounded aircraft return to the skies with 12 more to follow, and the lease-in of 30 narrow- and wide-body aircraft over the next 12 months, also necessitates a significant expansion in the flying crew," it said.

As part of augmenting its talent pool, Air India said more than 1,752 applications for pilots and 72,000 applications for cabin crew received in the last two months are in the process of assessment.    

Air India's Chief Human Resources Officer Suresh Dutt Tripathi said an entire generation of workforce has missed the opportunity to work for Air India due to limited recruitment over the years.
