Following the disruption caused by the Indigo airline’s mass leave, last week’s on-time performance rating was impacted. The majority of employees used their sick days and vacation time to attend recruitment events for Air India, but now that Indigo has recognised the situation, it has announced wage increases.
Due to the current staff shortage experienced by British Airways, Delta Airlines, and SAS Airlines, numerous flights have been cancelled. British Airways cancelled approximately 10,300 flights yesterday, which had an impact on many travellers and the airline industry. Airlines must increasingly consider the needs and requirements of their workforce.
Due to COVID, the majority of airlines have maintained reduced salaries, but even when things have stabilised, few airlines have increased salaries. As a result, Indigo has finally increased staff salaries.
IndiGo has added another 8% to the restoration of pilot and cabin crew compensation. The action was taken after last week’s delays on more than half of IndiGo’s flights, which were caused by a high number of cabin crew members who called in sick right before takeoff. IndiGo anticipates increased levels of staff attrition as Akasa Air prepares to launch operations this year.
