New Delhi: Vistara’s chief commercial officer Sanjiv Kapoor has resigned from the airline, and he will be succeeded by Vinod Kannan. The airline, a joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, said in a statement on Monday that Kapoor resigned from his position due to personal reasons and that he will be discharging his official duties till December 31.

“The airline’s chief strategy officer, Vinod Kannan, will take over as the chief commercial officer, subsequently,” a Vistara spokesperson said in the statement. Kapoor’s resignation is the second top-level exit in the domestic aviation sector in recent days, after Sanjay Kumar quit as AirAsia India’s chief commercial officer.

In an email sent to employees, a copy of which was seen by ET, Kapoor said “sadly, all good things must come to an end” and that “the time has come to think of the last decade or so of my professional working life with my head and not just with my heart, balancing both personal and professional goals”.

Kapoor’s four-year stint at Vistara saw the airline grow from nine aircraft and 45 flights a day to 39 aircraft and more than 200 flights a day, and expanding from 12 stations to 34, including the launch of international operations.
