Wilson wrote to Scoot employees on May 13: “This afternoon, I informed the management team and your union leaders of my departure from Scoot and the SIA Group.” “It’s very difficult for me to leave Scoot, which I’ve had the honour and pleasure of growing from a basic spreadsheet to, amongst many other things, the World’s Best Long-Haul, Low-Cost Airline,” Wilson stated. Campbell Wilson was named chief executive officer (CEO) and managing director (MD) of Air India by Tata Sons on May 12.
