Jet Airways have not mentioned anyone else that is going to replace Agarwal who was one of the most successful CEO's who worked with the company. Post his resignation, shares in Jet Airways came down drastically on Tuesday as its current leaders are selling off stakes for the company.
Gaurang Shetty, who was the Director of Jet Airways, had already submitted his resignation earlier this month. Reportedly, Jet Airways has a debt of over 1.2 billion dollars. A few companies have even come forward to buy Jet Airways but nothing has been confirmed yet. One of the main bidders for Jet Airways is Etihad Airways.
