Thai AirAsia Appoints New CEO

Thai AirAsia has appointed Tassapon Bijleveld, previously the airline's CEO, as Executive Chairman, and longtime executive and founding member, Santisuk Klongchaiya (pictured), previously Director of Commercial, as Chief Executive Officer.

Tassapon said, "I assure you that I am still a part of AirAsia. My focus will now be on the overall executive picture and the company's direction in seeking out new opportunities for sustainable growth. I will also focus on enacting government policies and collaborating with private sectors to ensure Thailand establishes a leading position in the aviation industry. I rejoice to have Santisuk as the new CEO because he has been the key executive at TAA from the start. His visionary leadership, coupled with his marketing acumen, have been behind the success of TAA for the past 10 years. I am certain that TAA will continue to move forward stronger than ever."

"TAA's strong foundation is built on the capability of its staff and its robust internal culture, which will continue to power its growth. We will never stop developing and we have a clear plan for progress. We are ready to adopt innovations and to bring new opportunities and experiences to our guests," Santisuk said.
