AirAsia India CFO Vijay steps down
Vijay Gopalan has resigned as chief financial officer (CFO) of low-fare airline AirAsia India, citing personal reasons.
Gopalan had joined AirAsia India in August 2013 and was a part of the start-up team. Prior to AirAsia India, Gopalan worked as finance controller of Indian operations of Compass Group, as well as manager with consultancy and audit firm Ernst and Young.
AirAsia India, promoted by Tata Sons Ltd and AirAsia Group Bhd, started its operations on 12 June 2014 with an Airbus A320. In just about a year, the airline has grown to a fleet of five aircraft with 10 destinations in India, and has hit the one-million-passengersflown mark a little while ago.
Mint could not immediately contact Gopalan for a comment. "Our CFO Vijay Gopalan has decided to resign for personal reasons. This has been a long conversation and drawn out decision," said Mittu Chandilya, chief executive officer at AirAsia India.
