How will Jet Airways, Akasa Air's entry impact aviation industry
The entry of Jet Airways and Akasa Air into the aviation sector in India along with the revamped Air India has created a lot of buzz. The development means a lot for the existing players as it will increase the competition, which is good for customers because it may lead to lower prices in the aviation industry and there will be more airlines to choose from.
However, airlines may have to cut down on expenses in order to offer cheaper flight tickets. If that happens, it will be a cause of concern for any airline.
The entry of Akasa Air and Jet Airways will increase competition manifold, but there will be room for growth for all. Also, in terms of employment, we can expect employment opportunities to grow, Raj Das, Global Co-Founder and CEO of Hirect India said.
Akasa Airlines is planning to hire 350 cabin crew and pilots by 2023, which will be beneficial for the economy at large, according to reports.
The Jalan Kalrock Consortium (JKC) announced new appointments for the Jet Airways leadership team, as the airline prepares to make a historic comeback with fresh funding, changed ownership, and new management.
Jet Airways is hiring for senior managerial role for schedule planning and systems and executive or senior executive role - network planning.
The aviation industry is a fast-paced, demanding and rewarding field. The pay is high for those who have the skills and qualifications to do the work and also according to the job location. There are many different types of jobs that fall under the aviation industry umbrella, from pilots to flight attendants.
An entry level cabin crew can expect to earn an average total compensation of Rs 4 to Rs 6 Lakh Per Annum (LPA). While an experienced cabin crew earns an average total compensation of Rs 8 to Rs 12 LPA. On the other hand, a pilot can expect an average starting salary of Rs 11 LPA, according to inputs from Hirect India.
To work as a cabin crew, you must have high school graduation in any subject. You must be at least 18 years old and 5 feet 2 inches tall (this differs from airline to airline) to be admitted to these programmes. It is critical that you have a valid passport. It's also important that you're mentally and physically fit. Apart from that, you should have an appealing personality, Das said.
Communication is one of the vital skills which are required for the aviation sector. A candidate with fluency in different languages has an upper hand in getting the job much easier than the one who lacks communication skills. One should know how to deal with customers even in difficult situations.
