Jet Airways Crisis: CEO Vinay Dube resigns - Here is the reason he cited behind this big step
Dubey is the fifth top-level official to resign the cash-strapped airlines after its deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer Amit Agarwal and company's Chief People Officer (CPO) Rahul Taneja put in their resignation papers.
Vinay Dube, Chief Executive Officer of Jet Airways, has resigned from the company with immediate effect on Tuesday citing 'personal reasons'. Dubey is the fifth top-level official to resign the cash-strapped airlines after its deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer Amit Agarwal and company's Chief People Officer (CPO) Rahul Taneja put in their resignation papers.
In an official statement to BSE, the company said, ''We wish to inform you that Mr Vinay Dube, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, vide his letter dated 14 May 2019, has resigned from the services of the Company with immediate effect due to personal reasons.''
Run out of cash, Jet Airways suspended its operations on April 17. Subsequent to this, hundreds of employees have left the crisis-hit carrier to join rival companies. Its aircraft are also being gradually de-registered. These events have added to the growing uncertainty about airline`s revival.

Lenders of Jet Airways led by SBI are currently in the process of selling the airline to recover their dues of over Rs 8,400 crore. Private equity firm TPG Capital, Indigo Partners, National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) and Etihad Airways had been shortlisted to submit their bids after they gave their EoIs.
On May 10 -- the last date for submitting the binding bids -- only Etihad gave its offer and that too in the eleventh hour. The other two bids for the airline were unsolicited.
