National, 16 April 2024: Akasa Air, India’s fastest-growing airline, has been recognized for its outstanding workplace environment and career growth opportunities by LinkedIn, earning a spot in LinkedIn's 2024 Top Companies List in India. Akasa has been ranked 8th in LinkedIn’s inaugural list of Top Companies in the midsize category (companies with fewer than 5,000 employees) in India. The list is a data-backed ranking of 15 leading workplaces in India to grow one’s career, paving the way in setting professionals up for long-term career success. Akasa Air is the only airline to be featured in this category for 2024.

 

Commenting on the development, Vinay Dube, Founder and CEO at Akasa Air said, “I am extremely pleased to see Akasa featured in LinkedIn’s list of top mid-sized companies for career development in India. What makes this recognition even more satisfying is that we have achieved this milestone while being the fastest growing and most reliable airline in India, within just two years of starting our operations. People are our biggest asset, and we continue to invest in building a culture of employee centricity and happy workplace. We are really grateful to all our colleagues for their trust in Akasa and powering the unprecedented growth of the airline. We will continue to strive to be a workplace that they can grow and take pride in.”

 

Ritu Sinha, Head of Human Resources at Akasa Air also shared, “At Akasa Air, we have endeavoured to build a culture of employee-centricity and to be a workplace that employees feel proud to be a part of. We have made several conscious efforts in that direction. Our policies, from compensation and benefits to learning and development initiatives, are crafted to meet the diverse needs and expectations of our employees. Our approach to learning and development is rooted in developing a future-ready workforce that will gain a competitive advantage in the dynamic aviation landscape. Moreover, we want all our employees to have fun at work and we make every effort to infuse this in our daily lives at Akasa.”
