IndiGo appoints Saguna Vaid as General Counsel effective December 1


IndiGo Airlines has appointed Saguna Vaid as general counsel effective December 1, it announced Thursday.

Vaid will replace Priya Mehra, who has joined future low cost carrier Akasa Air as legal officer.

“Saguna joins IndiGo after working at Nokia Networks, where she was director and head of legal and compliance for India and the APJ (Asia-Pacific and Japan) region,” IndiGo said in its statement.

Prior to Nokia, Vaid was vice president and general counsel for Asia at Genpact for more than a decade, during which time she also supported the operations of GE Aviation, he said.

“She has also worked with leading law firms in India and the Middle East, and her experience includes advising major national airlines,” the statement said.

IndiGo is India’s largest airline. It carried 22.66 lakh of passengers in September, or 57.5% of the total domestic market.

Ronojoy Dutta, CEO of IndiGo, said that Vaid’s extensive experience in advising and supporting businesses in all geographies at Nokia, coupled with his experience in the aviation industry, will be extremely useful for IndiGo and will rightly support the airline’s international growth plans.
