I started to write about aviation and air cargo only in the last 10 years. Therefore, it is a challenge to write about a man who created an organization almost five decades back and turned it into one of India’s leading GSSAs serving global airlines. It was only in February 2014 that I met Mr Vithalani for the first time. It was at the Air Cargo India exhibition and conference in Mumbai. Since then I am fascinated by him and how he keeps building his organization on the strong foundation of the strength of his people. He has the unique quality of perfectly aligning his vision with the human capital of his organization and be successful. Reji JohnEditor, STAT Media Group
Mr Vithalani—fondly called Hirabhai by his friends is one of the pioneers in the Logistics Aviation industry in the country. He is considered as the best General Sales Agent and Ground Handling Agent, equipped with vast experience of the Indian Market’s peak and lean season for cargo, equipment requirements, and has served the exporters and importers of India, greatly!Haresh H.MehtaEKF Global Logistics Pvt Ltd
He is known for his honesty and dedication to Air Cargo, Cargo Agents as well as his own staff who have been with him for decades! In the Indian Aviation industry we would rank him the No 1 GSSA and ground Handling Agent!
I wish him, his team and Global Aviation very successful years ahead.
I am privileged to share a professional journey with Mr. Vithalani that spans back to May 1988, during my tenure at Air Canada. His unparalleled contributions to the development of Air Cargo have not only earned him a well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award from the Air Cargo Association of India but also established him as a kind, generous, and visionary leader.Mr. S D PrabhuCargo Manager – Maharashtra & Goa, Emirates
In my experience working closely with Mr. Vithalani, I have witnessed his unwavering commitment to fostering relationships, making him a standout figure in the industry. His support has been invaluable to me, and I consider myself blessed to have had the opportunity to collaborate with such an extraordinary individual.
In the realm of mentors, Mr. Vithalani stands out as a unique and irreplaceable figure, fondly referred to as 'HKV.' It's often said that God broke the mold after creating someone exceptional, and Mr. Vithalani is a testament to that. Alongside Mr. Andy Narayan, he has played a pivotal role in shaping my professional and personal growth. I am immensely grateful for the impact he has had on my life and career.
The patriarch of the industry — His knowledge of the trade is immense and well respected. Looking forward for the Golden Jubilee. Subeer BharadwajManagement - Rainbow Aviation Private Ltd
