In top level exodus at grounded Jet Airways, four senior executives, including chief executive Vinay Dube and his deputy Amit Agarwal, have quit the ailing airline.
Amid lenders scrambling to find a suitor, the cash-starved carrier on Tuesday announced the exit of three executives — Dube, Agarwal and Company Secretary Kuldeep Sharma — while a source said the carrier’s Chief People Officer Rahul Taneja too has put in his papers.
Except for Agarwal, who quit on Monday, the rest resigned on Tuesday.
Chief executive Dube’s departure marked the end of his 21-month long tumultuous tenure during which the once-storied carrier shuttered operations due to cash crunch after more than 25 years of “happy flying.”
“We wish to inform that Vinay Dube, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), has resigned from services of the company with immediate effect due to personal reasons,” Jet Airways said in a filing.
