In a meeting held last week, Air India’s board approved Chandrasekaran’s appointment as chairman, sources shared. Chandrasekaran, who took over the reins of the Tata group in 2017, got a five-year extension as the executive chairman of Tata Sons last month.
On 27 January, the Tata group took over the management and control of Air India from the government. Last month, the Tata Group announced the appointment of Ilkar Ayci, former chairman of Turkish Airlines, as the CEO and MD of Air India. However, the IC turned down the offer, saying his appointment had been “coloured” by the Indian media. (ANI)
