Back in July, we wrote about how Vistara was going to get a new CEO as of October 2017. While the outgoing CEO Phee Teik Yeoh had the second tenure ahead of him, he got called back onto the mothership presumably to lead the customer experience at Singapore Airlines, which is one of the things that we are proud of for SQ.
Hence, SQ has sent in Leslie Thng, who took charge yesterday at the airline as the CEO. He is coming in from Budget Aviation Holdings, where he was the Chief Commercial Officer. Earlier, he was the CEO of SilkAir as well, which is the regional arm of Singapore Airlines.
While under the current management Vistara has indeed worked on some great initiatives, let’s hope they keep up the speed and do a great job at launching international operations under the new CEO.
If there is one thing you had on your wishlist for Vistara, what would that be?
