Rakesh Jhunjhunwala-Backed Airline Venture Akasa Hiring Jet Airways Veterans To Fill Its Top Management

Gearing to disrupt the Indian aviation sector, billionaire investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala backed ultra-low-cost airline startup Akasa Airlines has brought in a host of veteran Jet Airways employees to shape up its top deck of officials, reports Moneycontrol.

The development comes merely days after the airline received the No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation to begin operations. It should also be noted that the company's founder and chief executive Vinay Dube was also the last chief executive of the now grounded Jet Airways.

The company is said to have named Bhavin Joshi as senior vice-president of finance and leasing and Anand Srinivasan as chief information officer. Praveen Iyer has been named chief commercial officer. Also, Belson Coutinho will head marketing, Adam Voss will be in charge of engineering, Ajit Baghchandani will helm inflight services and Captain Floyd Gracious will be the head of operations at the new airline.

It should be noted that most of the aforementioned persons have previously served at Jet Airways.
