Retired diplomat Ranjan Mathai has resigned as an independent director on its board due to his other commitments, said Jet Airways on Thursday. Mathai was quitting because of increasing demands on his time from his other commitments, including some of academic nature, the airline statement said.
"I am no longer able to devote the time required to meet my obligations as an independent director on the board of Jet Airways and have accordingly decided to resign from the board," Mathai was quoted as saying in Jet Airway's statement.
