Jet boss wins man of the year

Jet Airways’ Chairman Naresh Goyal has been presented with the prestigious ‘Man of the Year’ award by the Belgian Aviation Press Club (APC). The Aviation Press Club is an influential club of Belgian aviation journalists that celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

Mr. Goyal was presented with the award by Ms. Cathy Buyck, Chairwoman of the APC.


Commenting on the honour, Mr. Goyal declared “I am honoured to receive this award in the first year of our activities on Brussels Airport. However, credit for my winning this award must also go to my team, as well as Brussels Airlines and Brussels Airport for whose support I am very grateful.”



Ms. Buyck added, “We wish to congratulate Mr. Goyal on the successful start that he had at Brussels Airport with Jet Airways. By constructing an international hub at our national airport he has helped to put it once again on the map internationally”.


One of the fastest growing airlines in the world, Jet Airways was the first Indian airline to establish a European hub at Brussels, as well as the first to operate direct flights between India and Brussels.
