Air India To Restore Employee Salaries To Pre-Covid Level From 1 September


Air India to restore salaries back to pre-Covid levels from 1st September. Apart from that, it also decided to revise the crew living allowance and boarding rules.

As per a PTI report, Air India CEO and MD Campbell Wilson said in a memo to employees that the airline “will resume salary cuts for all employees from 1 September 2022.” Airlines still have work to do to become profitable, but “the suspension of most COVID measures is an important and welcome milestone,” Wilson said.

The loss-making airline was acquired by the Tata Group on 27 January after successfully bidding for the airline on 8 October last year. Earlier this year, Air India began gradually returning salaries to pre-pandemic levels. Inquiries to Air India were not answered.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on the airline industry, with operators resorting to cost-cutting measures, including pay cuts, to manage finances. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Air India has reduced flight allowances by 35%, special allowances by 40% and widebody allowances by 40%. Cabin crew flight and widebody allowances have been reduced by 15% and 20% respectively.
