Pilots of domestic carrier SpiceJet Ltd, which is currently grounded due to the ongoing lockdown, will not be getting any salaries for April and May, while those flying cargo flights will be getting paid only for the block hours flown, the airline said in a letter to its staff.
“We will not be getting any salary for April and May 2020. Those of us who have been flying cargo, will get paid for the block hours flown,” the airlines chief of flight operations Captain Gurchran Arora said in a mail to the airline’s pilots.
A SpiceJet spokesperson didn’t offer comments.
A copy of the mail has been reviewed by Mint.
SpiceJet had earlier in March announced a 10-30% pay cut for all its employees across top and mid rung levels due to the impact of covid-19 on its operations.
