Virgin Atlantic announced the appointment of Shivani Singh Deo as the country manager for India. Deo, who has a rich history with the airline, will take on her new role effective January 1, 2024. 

Deo brings eight years of experience with Virgin Atlantic, where she previously served as the Marketing and Communications Manager. Her career has spanned various international market sectors, including retail, media, and lifestyle. Her outstanding contributions to the airline have significantly bolstered Virgin Atlantic’s brand presence in India.

Under Deo’s leadership, Virgin Atlantic successfully executed high-profile initiatives such as the launch of the Mumbai route, the second daily Delhi service, and a strategic codeshare partnership with IndiGo. These efforts not only expanded the airline’s reach but also generated substantial PR and media coverage. 

Deo’s promotion to Country Manager reflects her exceptional performance and underscores Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to nurturing and rewarding talent from within the organization. In her new role, Deo will spearhead the airline’s commercial strategy in India during an exciting period of growth. “I am excited to be taking on this new role at Virgin Atlantic and leading the dynamic team in India,” said Deo. “We will continue to champion the needs of the customer and tap into the incredible growth opportunities in the Indian market.” 

Virgin Atlantic is set to expand its India network further in 2024 with the launch of a daily London Heathrow to Bengaluru service, scheduled for March 31, 2024. This expansion reflects the airline’s commitment to serving the Indian market and catering to the needs of Indian travelers. 

In the interim, Alex McEwan, the current country manager for the region, will continue to manage Virgin Atlantic’s India operations until the end of 2023. He will provide a smooth transition for Deo as she assumes her new role. Following his tenure as Country Manager, Alex will embark on a new journey as Senior Manager, of Asia Pacific, in the new year.
