Plagued by problems, Air India takes a positive step.


Air India seems to be in the news for all the wrong reasons. So when the airlines introduced a new Crew Management System on 1st June 2012 it came as a welcome change. The new system will replace the old manual system ruling out the scope of any subjectivity and favoritism in the deployment and management of crew and other staff.

The new System will ensure high levels of safety of operation, meet regulatory requirements, optimised crew utilisation and achieve crew satisfaction . The first phase of this system is operative for the cockpit crew while in the second phase the cabin crew along with support staff will be covered from the second half of this month.

The Crew Management System is an integrated tool for crew planning (long, medium and short term) depending on the network plan and commercial schedule of the airline. This system will provide real-time visibility of operation and flexibility to manage disruptions by providing real-time crew availability. It will also manage and control crew duty time, leave and sicknesses and provide a firm plan of operation to management and crew.
