Air India to adopt new rostering system from August; will allow crew to swap flights

Tata group promoted, full service carrier, Air India will adopt a totally new rostering system from August which will allow its crew to swap flights and even chose accommodation of their choice during layovers.

Following last month’s introduction of the new crew pairing module, the first Jeppesen-built rosters will go live across the airline’s fleets in August, a mail shared with employees by CEO and MD, Campbell Wilson stated.

“As the system settles in, the crew should see earlier rosters, better integrity of ‘golden offs’ and better standby provisioning to reduce last-minute call ups. Also when averaged over a few months there will also be more equitable earnings,” Wilson said.

Other features such as the ability to swap flights, the ability to register flight or layover preference will be progressively rolled out in the remainder of the year.

With more than 500 new crew being released into service in each of the coming months, Air India hopes to reinstate full crew complements and accelerate training.
