How do you see the appointment of the new CEO for Air India?

The good news is that after a long wait, Air India has finally managed to get its CEO candidate in place. Just about a couple of months back, Tata Sons had finalized the appointment of Ilker Ayci, former Turkish Airlines chairman, for the top job. However, due to targeted protests by right wing groups in India, Ilker Ayci decided to voluntarily give up the role. Now Campbell Wilson, CEO of no-frills Scoot Airlines, will assume charge as the CEO and MD of Air India and take on the responsibility of steering the company.

Campbell Wilson comes with a formidable reputation in the global aviation industry. He has a background in sales and commercial roles and rose from the ranks at Singapore Airlines, one of the world’s most respect full-service airline. Tata Sons has been looking for a full-time CEO for Air India. The primary focus will be on delivering a unique customer experience. However, Wilson will have to navigate the tough Indian skies with Indigo already entrenched, Jet bouncing back and Akasa announcing mega airline plans.
