Pieter Elbers, who retires from the helm of KLM on July 1, will be Indian airline IndiGo‘s next CEO.

Elbers will replace Ronojoy Dutta at IndiGo when he retires on September 30. Dutta has led the airline, which is India’s largest, since 2019.

“I am delighted to become a part of the next stage of IndiGo’s incredible journey, further fulfilling the vision of what the airline can do and will be for its customers and for India,” Elbers said in a statement.

The head of the Netherlands passenger rail operator NS, Marjan Rintel, replaces Elbers at KLM.
