The appointment is effective from yesterday.
He will be reporting to the Chairman, Managing Director and the board of directors of GoAir.
Jeh Wadia, Managing Director, GoAir said, "Vrieswijk will work with the Board and leadership team to expand and implement a range of strategic initiatives to lead the airline into its next phase of growth. I am confident that he will help scale GoAir further and establish it as a most profitable low cost carrier in the highly competitive Indian market."
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, airline's last CEO, resigned in last December to join IndiGo as its Chief Operating Officer.
With 25 years of experience, Vrieswijk, a management graduate from Catholic University Nijmegen, has also worked with major brands like Thomas Cook Group, EasyJet Airline Company and Transavia Airlines.
Vrieswijk said, "I am truly honoured and overwhelmed to join this dynamic airline and see myself closely working with the entire GoAir team in realising its objectives. My primary focus will be to grow the airline to a strong position and modelling the desired changes for further growth and expansion.”
