Air India has significantly reduced the number of top-level positions in a bid to rationalise staff strength. The move was overdue after the merger between the erstwhile Air India and Indian Airlines.
The airline has cut down the number of positions of executive director from 43 to 19, general managers from 107 to 54 and deputy general managers from 143 to 112.
“This rationalisation was long due and the number of posts were required to be cut after the airline was merged. Post the merger, we had to retain the executives from both the airlines and that had been rationalised now,” said a senior Air India official.
