AirAsia X names new group CEO, reshuffles senior management

AirAsia X has promoted current CEO of AirAsia X Thailand, Nadda Buranasiri (pictured), to group CEO effective immediately. Co-group CEOs for AirAsia X, Kamarudin Meranun and Tony Fernandes, have been redesignated as non-executive directors. Both will continue to oversee the strategic direction of the business and its operations as directors of AirAsia X.

Buranasiri joined AirAsia X Thailand in 2014 and has been instrumental in setting up the airline’s Bangkok-based long haul operations. He also previously worked at Universal Music Thailand as managing director.

Fernandes said that the move is an “important one” for AirAsia X as it continues with its business transformation plans to take long-haul, value air travel to new heights. He added that Buranasiri has had an “exceptional career” and brings a wealth of experience in a broad range of industries, including senior roles in sales, advertising, banking and the music industry. “This is a great example of our internal talent development and succession planning for our key leadership roles,” he said.

Kamarudin added, “I would like to congratulate Buranasiri on his new appointment, and I look forward to working with him and the whole team at AirAsia X as we continue to grow and work towards creating a sustainable, viable long-haul business for the future in existing and new global markets.”
