Jet Airways brings on board Gary Kenneth Toomey as CEO

Jet Airways has appointed Gary Kenneth Toomey as its new Chief Executive Officer. The appointment follows the resignation of Nikos Kardassis, who left the airline after serving two terms as CEO, initially between 1993 and 1999, and again from October 2009 till May 2013.

Commenting on Kardassis’ departure, Naresh Goyal, Chairman, Jet Airways said, “Nikos has made a significant contribution to Jet Airways, particularly in the development of our international network, laying the foundations for our future expansion.”

Toomey has previously served as President and CEO of the Air New Zealand Group and as CEO of Airlines PNG in Papua New Guinea during their periods of major expansion. Prior to these roles, he was Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director of Qantas Airways, and before that, Chief Financial Officer of Australian Airlines.

Commenting on Toomey’s appointment, Goyal said, “We need a dynamic executive with deep knowledge of and experience in the airline industry to lead the next phase of our development. Toomey has extensive experience in domestic and international airline management, and the right credentials and skills to take Jet Airways forward.”

Calling the Indian aviation market as one of the fastest-growing in the world, Toomey said that the market offers significant potential for Jet Airways, not only within India, but beyond, through new or improved international connections.

“I am delighted to have been selected to lead the company and continue the development and growth of Jet Airways,” he added.

Toomey’s appointment is subject to necessary regulatory approvals, including security clearance as may be required.

Meanwhile, Capt Hameed Ali will continue as Acting Chief Executive Officer of Jet Airways, pending regulatory approval of Toomey’s appointment.
