Recruitment in the aviation sector is on the rise, despite weak air travel demand and mounting losses at airlines. Entry of new carriers, addition of more routes by global players, mushrooming of new airports and modernisation of old ones has opened up employment opportunities in the industry. "The recruitment trend that we see in the Indian airline market is due to individual business plans of some airlines, primarily IndiGo which is adding more capacity than its rivals," said Peeyush Naidu, director at consultancy firm Deloitte India. "Recruitment by foreign carriers shows the immense potential for our human resources, especially in the hospitality sector." According to him, choosing the right crew and training them are key for airlines because "in an industry where all airlines offer the same set of fares, the service quality can be the only differentiating factor".
