Jet Airways Wednesday said its chairman Naresh Goyal has been re-elected to IATA’s Board of Governors.
This would be the fifth successive tenure for Goyal at the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Board of Governors, the airline said in a release.
Goyal is the only representative from India on this board.
“As a member of the board of governors, Goyal will participate in providing policy directives and guidance to IATA industry committees and to their subsidiary bodies.
“Goyal will serve a three-year term, lasting until the close of IATA’s 75th AGM in 2019,” the release said.
IATA represents more than 260 member airlines, and plays a key role in helping formulate global policy on critical aviation issues.
“I am honoured to have been re-appointed to the very prestigious IATA Board of Governors… I look forward to working closely with my colleagues on the IATA Board of Governors to facilitate further growth and development of aviation across the world,” Goyal said.
Goyal was first elected to the board in 2004.
A leading carrier, Jet Airways flies to 68 destinations and currently has a fleet of 116 aircraft.
