IndiGo has reinstated the annual bonus it pays to its cabin crew, with the airline reporting its second consecutive profitable quarter on Thursday.

The airline informed the cabin crew that a bonus amount equal to three per cent of their FY23 salary would be paid to them along with the May salary.

IndiGo hadn't given a bonus to its crew for three years since it incurred losses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The annual increments paid to pilots were reintroduced from April, while the salaries were restored to pre-pandemic level last November.

The bonus payout comes amid a financial turnaround that saw a record fourth quarter profit of Rs 919 crore. The additional payout is also being seen as a move to attract and retain workforce. 

IndiGo has earlier said it will hire 5,000-6,000 employees in FY24 as it continues its expansion plan within India and overseas.
Other airlines, particularly Air India, have also stepped up their hiring with Go First declaring insolvency.
