We would like to appeal SBI to release Rs 1,500 crore funds for the airline to help it continue operations. We also appeal Prime Minister Narendra Modi to save 20,000 odd jobs at the airline,” National Aviator’s Guild (NAG) vice-president Adim Valiani told reporters at the airline’s headquarter, Siroya Centre, here on Monday.
Earlier, the airline’s pilots, engineers and cabin crew members assembled at the headquarters to show their solidarity.
The airline’s pilots along with engineers and senior staff were last paid for December, 2018. This apart, the airline has also defaulted on the March salary of other categories of employees as well.
