Tata-SIA to go on hiring spree
The venture between Tata sons and Singapore Airlines will begin a major recruitment drive in a couple of days, hiring engineers, security personnel and cabin crew as it prepares itself for launching in the October-December quarter. “We have received several applications but haven’t entertained them yet. The recruitment for these positions will start now,” said a spokesman for the airline. The salt-to-software conglomerate holds 51 per cent in the joint venture while Singapore Airline holds the rest.
Tata’s other airline venture with Malaysian carrier AirAsia will operate its first India flight on Thursday. Tata-SIA currently has a team of 20 top and second rung executives of the airline, most of whom have been recruited from either partner.
