Air India to have contracts for new hires


Being on contract will be a new norm at Air India, when it decides to hire employees – after years of freezing its jobs – first time since its merger with Indian Airlines.

Barring certain roles that require statutory compliance, policy making decisions, managerial positions, tendering roles and other senior job roles, recruitment for most front-line staff, including pilots, cabin crew and non skilled workers will be based on contracts.

The concept of contractual hiring was taken during an Air India board meeting during May 2012, a senior official with the airline, who was present at the meeting, recounts.
“But, it hasn’t been put to practice yet as we haven’t hired anyone since then. This could change.”
