Abrol is the second CEO after his predecessor Mittu Chandilya to leave the airline abruptly.
Chandilya, the high-street headhunter heading Egon Zehnder International's Asia Pacific operations and part-time model, who was handpicked by Air Asia group founder and chief executive Tony Fernandes himself, had to quit the company early February 2016 after a string of allegations surfaced including financial fraud under his nose and is now suing the ex-employer and auditor Deloitte for allegedly damaging his reputation.
During Abrol's time, the airline has expanded its fleet to 18 from six and the people and network by three-folds.
