Why Air India CEO sees 'Maharaja' as a startup, this is the big reason

Many changes are taking place in Air India as soon as they go to the Tata group. At the same time, when it is going to become a big airline after the merger of Vistara and AirAsia India, even then the company's CEO Campbell Wilson sees it as a startup. What is the reason behind this...

For Campbell Wilson, MD and CEO of India's oldest airlines i.e. Air India company, it is still like a startup. Tata Group started Air India in 1932, then after independence it turned into a government company. While it was once again acquired by the Tata Group in January last year, Campbell Wilson has given solid reasons for considering Air India as a startup.

Campbell-Wilson, who has to deal with all the difficulties that come with Air India's legacy, insists on calling it a startup. Air India planes have been refurbished after returning to Tata Group. Along with its website, operation, data management, attention has been given to the dressing and fitness of the staff. Recently, Air India has also placed an order to buy 470 new aircraft.

Reason for calling Air India Start-Up

Campbell Wilson has given a special reason for calling Air India a startup. He says that efforts are being made to bring a 'cultural change' inside Air India. So that the 'Maharaja' can be returned to its lost glory.

In an interview, he said that during his 26 years working in Singapore Airlines, he managed a startup very closely. Have seen Singapore Airlines getting commercialised. The history of Air India is big, the people working in it take pride in it. But many startup elements are also present in it.

No recruitment in Air India since 17 years

Campbell Wilson told another interesting thing about Air India. He said that many employees of the company are going to retire in the coming years. At the same time, it is also going to be merged with Vistara and AirAsia India . In such a situation, the company has tie-ups with Tata Group's Jaguar Land Rover and other companies. So that the ratio of operational and non-operational staff can be kept correct.

Air India last recruited non-flying staff in the year 2007. The average age of the company's employees is now 53 years due to not hiring new and young people. While the retirement age is 58 years. While the average age of the employees of the company should be 30 years.
