NEW DELHI: IndiGo, India’s largest domestic airline, announced salary hikes for its pilots and cabin crew following a record net profit of ₹3,090 crore in Q1 2023-24. The performance review process for nearly 4,500 flight crew has begun, and the new salaries will be effective from October 1, an Economic Times report cited.
With over 60% of India’s domestic market share, the airline reported its highest-ever quarterly profit.
“While we regained and started to build our financial strength over this past year, we reviewed and reinstated salaries and allowances to pre-Covid levels. In the coming months, we will be working with our HR team towards enhancing the salaries of our flight crew. The revised salary structure will be effective October 1,” the airline’s senior vice-president of flight operations Ashim Mitra said in a memo.
After a profitable January-March quarter, the airline declared a 3% salary bonus for its crew, acknowledging their hard work and boosting motivation.
