President Kovind’s daughter taken off air-hostess duty for security reasons


India’s national carrier Air India has said that President Ram Nath Kovind’s daughter Swati, who was an air hostess with it, has been assigned ground duties because of security reasons.


It also emerged that Air India allegedly had no clue about Swati being the daughter of the Indian president because she does not use a surname.

Swati was a cabin crew on Air India’s long-haul Boeing 787 and Boeing 777 flights, but for nearly a month now she has been deputed with Air India’s integration department at the airline’s headquarters here, the official said.

The department oversees human resource integration of erstwhile Indian Airlines and Air India since their merger in 2007.

“As a President’s daughter I don’t think she can fly as a crew with security personnel around. It is not possible to block so many passenger seats,” an airline source was quoted by PTI.

President’s son too worked with Jet Airways as a cabin crew in the past.
