Air India Express operations resume to normal after week-long cabin crew strike

After experiencing disruptions due to cabin crew strike last week, the Air India Express  operations nearly returned to normal, with no flight cancellations on Tuesday.

Last week, members of cabin crew took mass sick leaves to protest alleged mismanagement at the airline, resulting in the cancellation of hundreds of flights since last Tuesday.

The airline confirmed that operations have normalized, with all scheduled flights operating on Tuesday.

The airline operated around 345 flights, including approximately 201 international flights, with no cancellations—the first time this has happened since the strike began last Tuesday.

The cabin crew strike, which lasted around a day and a half, began on Thursday, and was called off following a reconciliation meeting convened by the chief labor commissioner in the national capital.

During the meeting, the Tata Group-owned carrier also withdrew termination letters issued to 25 cabin crew members.

The strike started by a section of the cabin crew protesting alleged mismanagement, forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights. In a statement on Sunday, the union confirmed that all cabin crew members who had reported sick had returned to duty by May 11, 2024, and that there were no delays because of the cabin crew.
