Air India’s ground handling subsidiary AIASL will provide job to a family member of its employees on compassionate ground in the eventuality of loss of life due to coronavirus pandemic, the company said in a notice.
The notice signed by GM (Personnel) of June 6 came on the day a 58-year old Air India pilot, who retired in April, reportedly died of COVID-19.
“In view of this (coronavirus pandemic) national crisis, it has been decided by the competent authority of Al Airport Services Limited (AIASL) that the company on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, will render support to the family of the deceased employee (due to COVID-19) may he/she be from AIASL, Air India or its subsidiaries by giving suitable employment to a family member,” the notice said.
This would also be applicable for AIESL, Air India Express and Alliance Air.
AIASL, which is headed by ex-Air India ED Ashvini Sharma, also said the employment will be provided as per the terms of engagement in the company and at airports served by the company.
It carries out ground handling business across 81 airports in the country.
