One of the Best Workplaces for Women! Now & Always!

Air India Express has been adjudged one of the ‘Best Organisations for Women’ for a second consecutive year by the Economic Times.

Diversity & inclusiveness have always been one of the core principles of Air India Express. It’s our joy to share with you the excitement of having brought home the recognition of being one of the ‘Best Organisations for Women’ by the Economic Times for a second straight year in 2022.

Air India Express CEO Mr. Aloke Singh and Chief Financial Officer Ms. Ranjita Kumari received the honour from Ms. Dia Mirza, Actor, Producer & UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, at a ceremony in that took place in Mumbai.

So what makes Air India Express – India’s first international budget carrier – an equitable workplace!

The company leaves no stone unturned when it comes to promoting gender equality in the organization. Besides the statutory requirements, the Airline makes sure that the workplace is comfortable for everyone, especially women employees. It has opened up all communication channels to encourage free and frank feedback.

The company gives special emphasis on inclusivity. Half our employees, including cabin crew, are based in smaller towns and cities. We have recruited crew mostly from the smaller stations on the Air India Express network and trained and groomed them for this industry.

Almost 40% of our workforce are women. The female workforce of the company has broken many stereotypes on their way up the career ladder. At Air India Express, women hold key positions across various departments, including Commercial, Finance, Company Secretariat, Flight Dispatch, and Training. The Airline has 45 women pilots – 16 Captains and 29 First Officers. Many of them have become check pilots, trainers and examiners, roles which were traditionally seen as male bastions.

The Airline firmly believes that a fair and productive working environment is essential in building an equitable workspace for both men and women. And as a team, we have proved time and again, that gender bias has no place among us and we continue to challenge it.
