Jet Airways’ top bosses quit, revival hopes fade

Mumbai, May 14

Grounded carrier Jet Airways’ chief executive officer Vinay Dube resigned from the post today, a day after its deputy chief executive and chief financial officer (CFO) Amit Agarwal quit the company.

An Indian-American, Dube had joined Jet Airways in August 2016 after serving various roles at Delta Airlines, Sabre Inc and American Airlines in the US, Europe and Asia.

“We wish to inform that Vinay Dube, CEO, has resigned from services of the company with immediate effect due to personal reasons,” Jet Airways said in a regulatory filing today.

Dube had stepped in the position after almost 15 months of the departure of then chief executive Crammer Ball. During the period, Agarwal was acting CEO.

Earlier in the day, Jet Airways informed exchanges of Agarwal’s resignation from the company on personal grounds.

“We wish to inform that Amit Agarwal, the deputy chief executive officer and CFO of the company, has resigned from service due to personal reasons, with effect from May 13,” Jet Airways said in the filing. — PTI
