Sharing the motivation behind the introduction of this initiative and giving insights into how Deepika is a perfect fit for the brand, DR. Vijay Mallya, Chairman and CEO, Kingfisher Airlines Limited, said “Kingfisher Airlines in the short span of 29 months has firmly established itself as a market leader while setting new service benchmarks. Deepika Padukone, the Kingfisher airlines Brand Ambassador, personifies the brand values of Kingfisher Airlines and what it stands for."
By elevating its customers to a level of being the 'guest" and not just passengers, Kingfisher Airlines has endeared itself to its consumers. The appointment of Deepika Padukone as the Kingfisher Airlines Brand Ambassador is yet another step in the direction of Kingfisher Airlines strengthening and deepening the unique understanding and insights that it has about the needs and aspirations of consumers in India.
