IndiGo losing senior pilots; 40 commanders quit in 1 year

Low-cost carrier IndiGo, which lost its market share by a percent in July to 30.7 percent, has also lost as many as 40 commanders or senior pilots mainly to Gulf carriers in the last one year.

IndiGo may face an exodus of its commanders to AirAsia India

Besides a hefty package that AirAsia India is offering to the pilots, there are other reasons, like better working conditions, for these pilots to move out, say Indigo sources.
