GoAir Friday said it will appoint former Jet AirwaysNSE -4.89 % chief Vinay Dube as its CEO as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

The announcement comes a year after its former chief Cornelis Vrieswijk quit.

He had been at the position for just nine months. Managing director Jeh Wadia had been running the airline in the interim.

Dube was CEO of Jet in its most difficult times before the airline shut operations in April 2019 as it ran out of cash and was unable to raise funds. Its debtors later filed a case in India’s bankruptcy court. In its last months, Dube and his team tried to keep operations going

Sources have said, Dube joined GoAir last year in a consultant’s role. The airline hasn’t confirmed this.

Prior to Jet, Dube was senior vice president-Asia Pacific at Delta Air Lines, CEO of Delta Techno
