“We are happy to welcome Sanjiv to Vistara as he will be joining us at a time when the airline embarks on a new phase of growth – with the new aviation policy around the corner and the successful completion of the first year of operation. Giam Ming with his impeccable strategy and execution has successfully created and established the Vistara brand promise through consistent delivery of product and service excellence. He has laid a strong foundation for Sanjiv to build on. I am confident that Sanjiv with his experience and market knowledge will propel Vistara’s growth further and capitalise on the opportunities that the Indian Aviation offers. Giam Ming will work alongside Sanjiv for a smooth transition.”

“I am delighted to be taking on the role of Vistara’s Chief Strategy & Commercial Officer. The airline has the best possible parentage in the Tata group and Singapore Airlines and with such wonderful genes, the world is its oyster. Indeed, it is already been talked of as the best full service airline in India, a testimony to the people and the leadership of Vistara. Given its laser focus on its people, product and customers, I look forward to working with Phee Teik and the entire Vistara team.”
