SpiceJet's chief commercial officer steps down
Budget passenger carrier SpiceJet on Friday announced high level managerial change, as its chief commercial officer Kaneswaran Avili stepped down. According to the company, Avili has stepped down effective April 10, 2015.
Avili joined SpiceJet on April 1, 2014, and according to the company he has been a key driving force behind several innovative market stimulation and revenue management efforts that helped drive overall market growth in India.
"Kanesh helped create the 'SpiceJet effect', which through demand stimulation and the refusal to accept half-empty aircraft flying around, especially in low season, has galvanised the entire Indian aviation market into high growth mode, while at the same time helping improve revenue performance," said Sanjiv Kapoor, chief operating officer, SpiceJet.
The company added that verticals under Avili will now report directly to Kapoor.
