Vistara, a joint venture between Tatas and Singapore Airlines, is looking to increase its total number of employees to 5,000 by the end of 2022. Currently, the airline has around 4,000 people.
Last week, Vinon Kannan, Vistar’s CEO, said: “While we had resumed recruitment and ramp-up of resources on various fronts buoyed by optimism in late 2021, the requirements around training and occupancy meant that we were not able to scale up as desired. This, coupled with a scale back in capacity, necessitated by a precipitous decline in demand, implied that the volume of enquiries and requests increased manifold.”
The airline, which currently has 50 planes, aims to have 70 planes by the end of 2023 after considering some aircraft returned to lessors.
