Cabin crew for Air India are about to get a new look – and a lot younger.

Air India flight attendants could soon get younger as the airline aims to cap the age of its cabin crew at 45.

The company hopes that the move will woo more customers onto Air India’s domestic and international flights.

Currently, the firm allows cabin crew to work until they are 58.

A spokesperson for Air India told the Times of India: “About 1,000 flight attendants in the age group of 20-27 have been hired recently.”

The operator is also overhauling the look of its in-flight attendants with the help of some fashion experts.

“National Institute of Fashion Technology, Delhi, is being asked to design a more aesthetic uniform for the crew,” the spokesperson told the news provider.

Recently, Air France announced that it has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people buying tickets to India.

The firm said it had witnessed a 6.1 per cent increase in capacity and a 7.6 per cent rise in traffic numbers to the country.
