Singapore Airlines was just named one of the top airlines in the world for 2022 by Skytrax World Airline.
The reputation of the airline’s cabin crew services was one of the criteria that contributed to the carrier earning the award.
The facility did have one significant drawback, namely that pregnant cabin crew women had to leave the airline.
This policy has drawn criticism for the airline on several occasions, and many have called it discriminatory. Singapore Airlines has declared that it will overturn the decision, rendering it worthless in light of all these facts.
This implies that the pregnant flight attendants can now keep working for the airlines.
Prior to the new policies taking effect on July 15 of this year, pregnant flight attendants with Singapore Airlines were required to disclose their pregnancies and take unpaid leave.
Even though the airline refers to it as quitting the service, the new mothers were also needed to resign following the birth of their child and to give the flag carrier a copy of their child’s birth certificate.
Expecting cabin crew members were not qualified for ground assignments, and they had to reapply under the airline’s returning crew programme if they wished to fly again.
But the opportunity to reapply under such a strategy did not guarantee that they would be hired by their former company once more.
With the new policy, things will, however, alter.
According to a report by Simple Flying, Singapore Airlines would now offer ground assignments for the awaiting crew members.
The obligations will extend for a minimum of three months and a maximum of nine months.
The pregnant cabin crew members would still be put on unpaid leave, but they would not be required to resign and instead may apply for as many ground jobs as they wanted to pay their bills until they began paid maternity leave.
Singapore Airlines also stated that they can restart their flying operations after maternity leave.
Even though it might have taken some time, the Star Alliance member airline is now gradually undergoing changes.
