AirAsia to recruit flight attendants in Goa

Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia Friday said it will scout for flight attendants for its India operations in Goa from June 23.

According to the company, walk-in interviews will be conducted in three cities, starting from Goa.

Goa is the home state of the founder and group chief executive of AirAsia, Tony Fernandes.

The names of the other two cities have not yet been disclosed.

In April, the company conducted interviews for cabin crew posts in Chennai, and subsequently for pilots and co-pilots in Bangalore.

The hiring by the airline is good news as nearly 8,000 employees of Kingfisher Airlines are jobless after the airline was grounded.

AirAsia had recently appointmented Subramanian Ramadorai, chairman of the National Skills development Corporation (NSDC), as its non-executive chairman for India operations. Before Ramadorai, the company had appointed Singapore-based management consultant Mittu Chandilya as its chief executive officer (CEO).

The appointments to top management positions fulfill a key condition for getting permission for starting operations from the home and civil aviation ministries.

The government March 26, 2013, approved AirAsia's proposal to set up a new airline in the Indian civil aviation sector with partners Tata Group and Arun Bhatia-promoted Telestra Tradeplace.

The initial investment approved for the airline stands at Rs.80.98 crore. The approval allows the budget carrier to roll out the seventh scheduled domestic carrier in the Indian skies which is expected to start operations later this year.

The new budget passenger carrier is proposed to operate, with a small fleet initially, from Chennai and focus on providing connectivity to smaller cities. It plans to start operations by the end of this year.
