Psychological contract and the organisational commitment in the Aviation sector is the topic chosen for the study.In the present study, we map the effects of four types of psychologicalcontracts viz: transactional, transitional, behavioural and balanced on the three components of organisational commitment namely Affective, Normative and continuance. The strength of a psychological contract depends on how fair an employee believes his\her organisation is fulfilling its perceived obligations above and beyond the formal written contract of employment. This determines the employee’s commitment to the organization followed by job satisfaction, involvement and job secuirty. Psychological contract smoothnes the relationship between the employer and its employees leading to positve attitudes and a higher extent to organizational citizenship behaviour. The study tries to focus whether the type of company and work experience act as moderating variables in this exploration. The study also checks whether employers’ Psychological Contract has any medaiating effect in the relationship between employees’ Psychological Contract and Organisational Commitment. The critical impact of the research is that ‘Affective’ contract obligations and ‘continuance’ contract obligations are the most important predictors of the employees’ organisational commitment in the Indian aviation industry. Therefore, airline companies need to adapt measures to foster these contracts inorder to boost the desired commitment. Subjects in the population are sampled by stratified random sampling process.
