GoAir COO Jyri Strandman quits amid differences with carrier's promoters

Mumbai: GoAir chief operating officer Jyri Strandman has quit the airline amid differences with its promoters, it is learnt.
Strandman who joined the airline in February is the latest of senior executives to leave the airline. The airline's chief commercial officer Manish Raniga had quit in August. This was followed by the resignations of senior executives in GoAir's finance, marketing and asset management departments.
Responding to an email query, a GoAir spokesperson said "no comments." Strandman worked as director operations in Spirit Airlines before joining GoAir.
The latest exit comes a few days ahead of GoAir's maiden international flights to Phuket and Male. The airline has 41 Airbus A320 planes at present and its expansion plans have been hit due to issues surrounding A320 Neo engines.
