Former Turkish Airlines Chairman Ilker Ayci has declined Tata Sons' offer to be the new chief executive officer of Air India, according to reports in news agency PTI. On February 14, Tata Sons had announced the appointment of Ayci, former chairman of Turkish Airlines, as the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Air India.

RSS-affiliate Swadeshi Jagran Manch had last Friday said the government should not give clearance to the appointment of Ilker Ayci the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Air India "keeping in view national security".

SJM's co-convenor Ashwani Mahajan had said the government is already sensitive to the issue and has taken up the matter "very seriously". Also Read - Poland Allows Indian Evacuees From Ukraine To Enter Without Visa
