About Air India

With existing airports either being upgraded to improve and decongest air traffic or new ones being built quickly across India to improve connectivity, there is a need for manpower to fill the void created by the redevelopment of the airline industry. To spearhead the effort to fill this sudden vacuum, Air India vacancy aims to pull all stops and recruit on a massive scale.

However, when it comes to the recruiter, most get confused between Indian Airlines and Air India. To make it clear once and for all, both were separate entities under the Ministry of Civil Aviation. While Indian Airlines functioned for domestic travel and some countries in Asia, Air India majorly operated airlines on international routes,

Today, both entities have merged under the Air India brand. 

As for Air India, the ownership rights belong to Air India Limited. It is headquartered at New Delhi, with Indira Gandhi International Airport (New Delhi) serving as its primary hub. It has a market share of 18.6%, making it the largest international carrier based out of India and consists of a fleet of Boeing and Airbus carriers serving 94 domestic and international destinations.
