Jet Airways has said that they will hire cabin crew for the airline using the Vistara model, ahead of the commencement of flight operations. Jet Airways stated it will fly flights with female cabin crew members in the beginning and then hire male cabin crew members after it reaches a specific operating capacity.

The airline will receive its air operator certificate (AOC) after it conducts it proving flights successfully. "While we only have women in our cabin crew in the current start-up phase, as an equal opportunity employer, we will be having men as cabin crew as well once we reach a certain operational scale," the spokesperson mentioned.

IndiGo, India's largest airline, employs exclusively female cabin personnel. Male cabin crew personnel are hired by full-service carriers Vistara and Air India. Male cabin crew workers are also employed by SpiceJet, Go First, and AirAsia India.

Jet Airways has always had a gender-neutral hiring policy, and that will continue, the spokesperson said. "The airline earlier proudly operated with a mixed cabin crew, and we will resume that and hire male crew once we get to a certain scale. It should be noted that it will be one of very few airlines in India that hire male crew, as we believe that it is the right thing to do," the spokesperson mentioned.
