"We are proud to have Amit Singh as director of flight operations and G Sampath as head of engineering on board. AirAsia India will definitely benefit from their wealth of expertise and experience," AirAsia India Chief Executive Mittu Chandilya said in a release here on Wednesday.
Prior to his present assignment, Singh has served carriers like Air India, IndiGo and Singapore's Scoot Air and carries with him 20 year of industry experience with the last seven years in developing and managing budget airlines, AirAsia said.
