Air India Express to recruit 50 pilots, 30 commanders in a year

December 15, 2012

Kochi: Aiming to increase the strength of pilots for optimum utilisation of its fleet strength, the Air India Express today decided to recruit 50 pilots, 30 commanders and 30 co-pilots within one year.
Shortage of commanders was the main issue discussed at the board meeting of the budget airlines here, chaired by Rohit Nandan, Chairman and Managing Director of Air India and AIE chairman.
Nandan told reporters that of the AIE’s requirement of 252 pilots, there are presently only 186 pilots and 60 are undergoing training.
Nandan said the AI and AIE will function as separate entities. AIE has to be on its own.
Earlier, pilots were being hired from AI on deputation to the AIE. The deputation period would be reduced and AIE will have to be on its own, he said.
