No-frills airline IndiGo today announced the appointment of Cindy Szadokierski as Vice President for airport operations and customer services.
Szadokierski, a former executive from United Airlines, will take up her new assignment from April 17, and will be reporting to IndiGo's Executive Vice President Sanjeev Ramdas, the airline said in a release.
Her appointment to the newly-created position comes at a time when the country's largest airline by market share is grappling with multiple issues, including those related to on-time performance and engine troubles in its A320 neo planes.
She is also the third executive from United Airlines to join IndiGo after Greg Taylor and Rohit Philip in the recent past.
Taylor joined the no-frills airline as Executive Vice President for Revenue Management earlier last month, while Philip has been serving as Chief Financial Officer since May last year.
"We are delighted to welcome Cindy to the IndiGo family... Cindy is a proven operations leader and I am confident that she will contribute greatly to the future success of IndiGo," IndiGo President and Whole-Time Director, Aditya Ghosh said in the release.
With a career in aviation spanning over 30 years, Szadokierski has held senior leadership positions primarily in the areas of airport operations as well as several other roles in operations, reservations and sales at United Airlines, IndiGo said.
"We are confident that Cindy will bring with her the knowledge of global best practises and help us adopt them in our operations," IndiGo added.
