Meanwhile, after waiting for over two months, Jet Airways on Wednesday, received security clearance of the government for the appointment of Vinay Dube as chief executive officer. An Indian- American, Dube’s appointment was approved by the airline’s board of directors on May 30. Jet Airways has been without a full-time CEO since Cramer Ball quit in February 2016.

The civil aviation ministry, through a letter today, “granted security clearance for the appointment of Vinay Dube as the CEO of the company,” Jet Airways said in a filing to stock exchanges. Consequently, Amit Agarwal has ceased to be acting CEO of the company, the filing added. Since the exit of Ball last year, there have been two acting CEOs — Gaurang Shetty and Amit Agarwal. Prior to this appointment, Dube was senior vice-president (Asia Pacific) at Delta Air Lines and was associated with the US-based carrier since 2007.
