New Delhi [India], September 20 (ANI): Akasa Air has moved the Delhi High Court against pilots who recently resigned without serving the mandatory notice period.
Airlines sought direction from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to take action against the pilots.
The plea stated that the Airline’s operations have come to be gravely affected on account of flagrant breaches and violations committed by the pilots engaged in relation to the agreements between the airline and the pilots.
Airlines stated that due to the sudden resignation, it will have to cancel multiple flights in September.
The Court was also informed by the airlines that due to these resignations, it had to cancel numerous flights every day this month.
The bench of Justice Manmeet Pritam Arora posted the matter for September 22, 2023, and asked the concerned parties to file their written synopsis.
SNV Aviation Private Limited and its CEO Vinauly Dube stated that none of the resignations tendered by the pilots appears to have been issued on account of any legitimate or bonafide reasons.
In fact, most of the resignation emails from the pilots do not even contain any reasons or justifications whatsoever for abandoning their service almost immediately after their resignation and without serving any notice period, it added.
In the past few weeks, several pilots engaged by the Airline’s firm have resigned from their positions in violation of their contractual obligations. Among other things, the pilots refused to serve the mandatory notice period of 6 six months under their employment agreements.
The plea also mentioned that a few of the resignation emails give vague and unsubstantiated reasons for the resignations. The collective mala-fides and lack of transparency from the pilots are evident from the fact that all of the emails seek resignation to be effective immediately. (ANI)
