Chennai, Sep 12 IANS | 11 months ago

Malaysian budget airlines AirAsia Thursday warned the public against responding to false recruitment offers for its Indian operations, and said it will not be responsible for the acts of unauthorised recruitment agencies.


In a statement issued here, AirAsia said it has lodged a police complaint against an unaffiliated agency for running a job scam.

"It has come to the airline's attention that an unaffiliated agency in India is using the AirAsia brand for false recruitment purposes and demanding payment from its candidates. This is a scam and the public should refrain from approaching or consulting such agencies pertaining to job opportunities with AirAsia," the airline said.

According to the airline, it carries out its own recruitment programmes and has never required third-party agents or services to recruit on its behalf.

"Recruitment/job openings will only be announced on airasia.com, through the airline's official communication channels and/or communicated via AirAsia's official email addresses (example:user@airasia.com)," the airline said.

The airline also said it will not entertain any request/demand for employment from job seekers with offers from unauthorised third-party recruiters.
