In the Indian aviation business, Aditya Ghosh is a well-known figure. For a decade, he was the president and sole director of IndiGo Airlines, which he left in 2018. Prior to it, he worked for Interglobe Enterprises as group general counsel.
Ghosh, a law graduate of Delhi University, has played a key role in transforming IndiGo into a world-class low-cost airline that is profitable. IndiGo had a market capitalization of roughly Rs 55,000 crore under Ghosh’s leadership. The number of aircraft ordered increased to 450, including Airbus 321 and 320s among them. Aditya was removed by the corporation in 2018, and it was a consensus choice. IndiGo was going through a hard patch at the moment. It experienced difficulty with purchasing less expensive aircraft as well as engine problems with Pratt & Whitney. Customer unhappiness with the engine troubles and the company’s handling of the crisis could have been a major factor in Ghosh’s departure from IndiGo.
Ghosh, on the other hand, is largely responsible for IndiGo’s tremendous gain in market share and customer happiness. He was a professional corporate lawyer with no marketing or business academic experience. Aditya Ghosh, a fitness obsessive, joined Oyo Rooms as CEO, South Asia, and board member after IndiGo. Now, he’ll work on Akasa Air alongside ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala.
