Budget carrier, JetLite's Chief Executive Officer(CEO), Maunu von Lueders, has resigned from his post.

Lueders, who was appointed the CEO on April 5 this year, put in his papers some time back.

"I have been discussing the issue with the management for quite some time. I have completed my assignment," Lueders told PTI in Mumbai on Thursday.

JetLite is a part of the Naresh Goyal-spearheaded Jet Airways group. Jet had acquired Air Sahara and had rechristened it as JetLite, making it a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jet Airways.

The integration process (following the acquisition) was much deeper now and so he did not have much of a role to play in the current situation, he said.

Lueders, however, did not specify the exact date of his departure from the company. It is not decided, whether it will be August or September..., he said.

A Finnish national, Lueders had taken up the assignment after his predecessor Garry Kingshott completed his contract with JetLite.

"I am not leaving for taking up some other assignment," the JetLite CEO said, adding, "I am not here to build a career. My career is behind me."
