Well, it can be said that Rakesh Jhunjhunwala’s Akasa Airlines has substantially relied on veterans from Jet Airways to form its top brass. Akasa just got its NOC or No Objection Certificate from the Civil Aviation Ministry. Meanwhile, Akasa named Bhavin Joshi as SVP - finance, Anand Srinivasan as CIO and Praveen Iyer has Chief Commercial Officer.

In addition, Belson Coutinho has been named Head of Marketing and Adam Voss will be the Head of Engineering and Capt. Floyd Gracious will chip in as the Head of Operations for Akasa Airlines. Former Jet veteran Vinay Dubey and ex-Indigo boss Aditya Ghosh will largely lead the show from the front for the new airline. Rakesh will invest $35 million in the venture for a 40% stake in the company.
