Getting to know Aditya Ghosh

Fitness fan, Aditya Ghosh joined Oyo Rooms after IndiGo as CEO, South Asia and Board Member. He has also partnered with leading investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala for Akasa air.

Ghosh was replaced in 2018 and it was the firm’s unanimous decision. IndiGo was going through a hectic time of the year. He had problems buying cheaper planes, engine problems with Pratt and Whitney.
