Akasa Air To Hire 1,000 New Employees By March 2024
By March 2024, Akasa Air expects to have hired close to 1,000 personnel. Let’s look at the growth strategies of India’s newest airline.
By March 2024, Akasa Air, the newest airline in India, intends to increase its fleet size and hire up to 1,000 new employees.
By that time, the airline will employ over 3,000 people overall, including 1,100 flight attendants and pilots, according to CEO Vinay Dube.
By the end of the year, the airline, which debuted just over a month ago, will also start operating internationally, though the locations are still being revealed.
Orders For Aircraft And Growth Ideas
By the end of 2023, Akasa Air will place a “three-digit aircraft order,” according to Dube.
The airline already has placed orders for 72 Boeing 737 Max aircraft, of which 19 are now in service with the introduction of the 20th expected for April.
By introducing nine aircraft to its present fleet, Akasa Air plans to increase its fleet size to 28 aircraft during the upcoming fiscal year.
The airline presently has 110 flights each day, but according to Dube, that number will rise to 150 by the conclusion of the summer months.
Challenges And The Hiring Process
According to Dube, hiring is always done ahead of time to make room for training, and the staffing level is determined by the number of scheduled aircraft deliveries.
He responded that the airline was lucky to recruit outstanding staff and would keep focusing on being employee-centric when questioned if post-pandemic hiring remains an issue.
Operations On A Global Scale
In order to assess the routes and traffic rights that are available for potential overseas destinations, Dube said the company was currently coordinating with the Ministry of Aviation.
He said that the airline is looking at both the eastern and western locations but was unable to give further details at this time.
Akasa Air carried 361,000 passengers in February, making up 3% of the home economy. According to the most recent official data, it’s still on performance was 87%.
Dube said he was happy with the accomplishment and expressed pleasure with the airline’s accomplishments to date.
What The Ceo Had To Say Regarding Akasha’s Goals
Dube has expressed his immense happiness with the recent accomplishments of the airlines. He claims that Akasa isn’t looking for a job in aviation though.

“We do not have market share goals or position in the aviation industry aspirations. Instead, our goal is to make customers and staff happy.
That is what we are doing, and if our cost structure is very solid, we can continue doing it. These three pillars are what we are concentrating on, thus,” he explained.
