Chennai: Air Asia India has kick-started the process of setting up a team to operate its flights out of Chennai. The airline floated by Air Asia and Tata Sons expects to hire more than 50 flight attendants at a walk-in interview in the city next week.
Airports Authority of India sources said the airline’s officials had already approached them for space at the terminal and the airside to set up the required infrastructure. The airline plans to connect smaller cities from Chennai and may offer convenient changeover options to its international services being operated to Kuala Lumpur.
“The walk-in interview for flight attendants will be held on April 13. Hiring of pilots is expected to start in May or June,” said a spokesperson for the airline. Around 5,000 people are expected to participate in the interview, she added.
More than 10 senior officials are expected to conduct the interviews. The airline considers its employees, including flight attendants, “ambassadors to the brand” and believes “an exceptional workforce is the key in elevating the brand, setting the airline apart from the rest,” said a statement from the airline.
