Air India Express onboards 280 pilots, 250 cabin crew

The airline has been on a hiring spree with recruitment drives taking place in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru over the past few weeks


Air India Express, the budget international airline, has been hiring recently. In fact, it has already brought on board about 280 pilots and 250 cabin crew, via recruitment drives across Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru.

The carrier, which will soon be integrating AirAsia into it, has received a huge response from candidates.

Over the past few days, recruitment drives have taken place across Kozhikode in Kerala, Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, Imphal in Manipur, Guwahati in Assam, Surat and Ahmedabad in Gujarat and even Mangalore in Karnataka in addition to all the metros.

With Go First having collapsed, many pilots and crew are on the lookout for jobs. Meanwhile, rival airlines have increased their number of flights and destinations, and are actively looking for crew. Air India, Vistara and IndiGo have increased the frequency of flights to make up for the gap created by Go First’s halt in operations on many busy routes.

While Air India Express used to be under the Indian Government, it is now owned by the Tata Group, after the latter acquired it along with the full-service airline, Air India, early last year, that is, 2022.

In addition to Air India and Air India Express, Tata Group is also the owner of the budget airline, AirAsia India. The Tata Group has a 51 per cent stake in Vistara, its joint venture with Singapore Airlines.
