The airline’s founder and CEO, Vinay Dube, refuted rumours that cabin crew members were leaving and said that Akasa Air has “one of the lowest attrition rates” in the sector.
“The rumour about Akasa’s cabin staff leaving is unfounded and factually false, much like the claim about capacity reduction. In actuality, the reverse is true. One of the lowest attrition rates and the fastest-growing network in the sector may be found at Akasa, according to Dube.
He stated that the budget airline anticipates increasing its workforce from 3,000 currently to 3,500 by the end of 2023.
We currently employ 3,000 people, and by 2023, we hope to reach a total of 3,500 people. We fly more than 900 times a week across our network, and we’re on schedule to launch our international operations by the end of this year, according to Dube.
Akasa Air has ordered four Boeing 737 Max aircraft last month. This purchase for four more aircraft will be made in addition to the original 72 Boeing 737 Max orders.
In a statement, Akasa, the newest player in the aviation industry and a company funded by late billionaire businessman Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, said it was on track to announce another sizable three-digit aircraft order before the end of 2023.
