The airline assured that during the LWP period, pilots will remain eligible for all other employee benefits as applicable i.e. all opted insurance benefits and employee leave travel. (file)Budget carrier SpiceJet on Tuesday said it has asked 80 of its pilots to go on a three-month leave without pay.
The move is a temporary measure to rationalise cost, the Gurgaon-headquartered airline said.

“This measure, which is in line with SpiceJet’s policy of not retrenching any employee which the airline steadfastly followed even during the peak of the Covid pandemic, will help rationalise the pilot strength vis- -vis the aircraft fleet,” the budget carrier said in a statement.

The pilots who have been forced to go on leave without pay are from the airline’s Boeing and Bombardier fleet.
Earlier Tuesday, a section of pilots went into a tizzy over the decision of the financially-embattled airline.

“The financial crisis of the airline was known to us but the suddenness of the decision has shocked many of us. There is also uncertainty about the company’s financial situation after three months. There is no assurance if those forced to go on leave will even be called back,” a pilot told PTI.

According to serving and former SpiceJet employees that PTI spoke with, this is the first time the airline has sent pilots on forced leave in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
