On July 2, cabin crew members went on mass sick leave, delaying flights

About a week after its cabin crew members took sick leave, IndiGo’s aircraft maintenance technicians have gone on sick leave in Hyderabad and Delhi to protest against low salaries. IndiGo declined to comment on the matter.

IndiGo had cut salaries of a large section of its employees when the Covid-19 pandemic was at its peak. After a significant number of its cabin crew members took sick leave July 2, half of IndiGo’s domestic flights were delayed. The sick leave coincided with Air India’s recruitment drive fuelling speculation of a possible shift.

Apart from Air India, now owned by Tata group, new airline Akasa Air and Jet Airways have also started hiring and this is causing a people churn in the aviation industry.
