AirAsia India CEO Mittu Chandilya is not quitting the airline, AirAsia Group chief Tony Fernandes said on Sunday as he announced that the two-year-old Indian carrier would “shortly” add two aircraft as part of its fleet expansion plans.
“I read about Mittu calling it quits from you guys. I absolutely deny it. There is no substance to the rumours,” the Malaysian airline group chief told reporters at the Make in India week here.
Unconfirmed reports had a few days ago said that Chandilya has put in his papers.
To questions on the loss-making airline’s much-delayed fleet expansion plan, Fernandes said two more planes would be inducted “shortly and a dozen later” but did not put a time line to these deliveries.
