Kumar’s resignation will be effective from July 15 and he will be replaced by William Boulter, who joined the airline as its chief strategy officer in April. Boulter joined IndiGo as the in charge of its international sales and revenue management. Before IndiGo, he was associated with TAAG Angola Airlines and Etihad Airways.

Kumar, a veteran in the Indian Aviation Industry, joined IndiGo on Jan 29, 2007, and since then has played a vital role in making IndiGo the biggest Indian airline in terms of market share. IndiGo in a statement said that Kumar has put in his papers to pursue other career interests.

IndiGo’s Interim CEO Rahul Bhatia said Kumar’s contribution has been very significant in getting them to the level they were today.  “I am grateful for all his hard work since he joined in January 2007 and wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” he added.

Prior to joining IndiGo, Kumar worked with Sahara Airlines from May 1992 till April 2001 at various positions.
