Air India to hire over 4,200 cabin crew, 900 pilots after record aircraft deal
Tata Group-owned Air India on Friday said it planned to hire over 4,200 cabin crew and 900 pilots in 2023, as part of a major revamp that saw the carrier seal orders for a record 540 jets earlier this month.
The overhaul at Air India started after it returned to the Tata Group’s fold last year, seeking to repair its reputation that declined in the mid-2000s as financial troubles mounted.
The airline had hired more than 1,900 cabin crew between May 2022 and February 2023, it said in the statement on Friday.
“We are also looking at increasing the hiring of more pilots and maintenance engineers,” said Sandeep Verma, the airline’s director of in-flight services.
