Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, being run by GMR Group here, is likely to have a new chief executive officer soon as the incumbent Vikram Jaisinghani is quitting the organisation, sources said. Kishore S. Gopalakrishnan, now CEO of commercial properties development at the airport, is likely to succeed Jaisinghani. Gopalakrishnan had also worked as chief operating officer of the SEZ division of GMR Group. "Vikram is leaving the organisation on personal grounds. He wanted to move back to Mumbai where his family resides. He is an excellent person and his contribution to the airport development is incalculable," a source told PTI. Jaisinghani could not be contacted for his comments. It could not be independently verified with GMR as its officials were not available for comments. Sources indicated that Jaisinghani's tenure with GMR Hyderabad International Airport will end by April 18 and the new CEO is expected to take charge since then. Jaisinghani took over as CEO of airport after his predecessor Sripathy was transferred as CEO international airports (GMR) in 2009. During Jaisinghani's tenure, the airport got the Best Cargo Airport in India and Best Cargo Terminal in India award by Air Cargo Agents Association of India (ACAAI) in 2012. The passenger traffic has grown to 8.6 million in 2011-12 from 6.5 million in 2009-10 and cargo traffic increased to 81,487 tons from 66,482 tons during the same period. While net revenues have grown to Rs 574 crore during 2011-12 from Rs 403 crore in 2009-10.
