Indian airlines to terminate all foreign pilots by 2013

Adv:

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, India - Foreign pilots employed in the Indian aviation industry would be asked to leave by 2013, the head of the country's airlines regulator said Monday.

"This is the date that we are planning and we feel that we will be able to achieve it," Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) E.K. Bharat Bhushan said here.

He said the airline industry will through this make huge savings because such pilots are highly paid. Presently, 415 foreign pilots are employed in the country, Bhushan said.
