National Aviation Company of India Ltd, that runs the government’s flagship carrier Air India, has formally started looking for a Chief Operating Officer (COO) to steer the airline as part of its restructuring plan.
This is the first time that the cash-strapped national carrier is appointing a professional for the post of COO, who would look after the day-to-day flight and related operations of the carrier and report to CMD Arvind Jadhav.
In an advertisement on Tuesday, the airline said the COO would be part of the top management team and oversee the overall operational performance of the company.
Going by the advertisement, the ideal candidate should be part of the top management of a public or private company with over 15 years of experience and in the age group of around 45 to 50 years.
“Preference would be given to those who are in the Aviation Industry or in the past had turned around performance of a large organisation with manpower strength of at least 10,000,” the advertisement said.
