Indigo’s ‘Take off 2.0’ initiative takes off

The return-to-work programme will help women who have been on a break to relaunch their careers


If you are a woman who has been on a break and is looking to resume your career, Indigo may have an opportunity for you. Take Off 2.0 is an initiative launched by Indigo, inviting women to be part of the airline’s ‘return-to-work’ programme.

‘The sky is the limit, not your career’ says the post by Ruchi Dhawan Sharma, vice president and head – HR, Indigo (InterGlobe Aviation) on LinkedIn.

Last year, that is, in July 2022, IndiGo had made headlines when its crew had gone on mass leave in protest of continued salary cuts. Turn by turn, the airline’s pilots, cabin crew and even technicians had gone on leave and reported sick as a way of expressing their displeasure at the pay cuts that had begun during the pandemic and had continued even after the flights had resumed. The airline had said at the time that it was constantly discussing with its crew to sort out their issues and grievances. A month later, in August, the airline had announced that its crew’s salaries will be restored by November.

Meanwhile, IndiGo saw its shares surging over eight per cent today as Go First, the smaller but rival airline, files for bankruptcy. Hopes have been raised regarding market share gains. With about half its fleet grounded, Go First filed for bankruptcy, accusing Pratt & Whitney of supplying them with faulty engines.
