The Dutch national Cornells Vrieswijk, who joined the Wadia group promoted GoAir in June 2018 has taken an exit from GoAir citing family matters. Mr Vrieswijk was a former executive of the American low-cost airline Easyjet.
Jeh Wadia, Managing Director, GoAir will be discharging the additional responsibility of the chief executive till the post is replaced.
“It is unfortunate that despite best efforts, my family did not shift to India but rather wants me to be back with them in Amsterdam,” Vrieswijk was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the airline.
“The board understood his compulsions to move back and accepted his reasoning to move on,” the airline said, adding he will stay on to ensure a smooth transition. “We recognise Vrieswijk’s contribution to the airline, but at the end-of-the-day, for him it was family calling,” Wadia was quoted as saying in the company statement.
Mr Wadia further added “Going forward, I will take over the CEO’s role until a suitable replacement takes place,”
