Jetstar Hong Kong announces CEO

5-Feb-2013 7:47 AM

Jetstar Hong Kong announced (04-Feb-2013) the appointment of Edward Lau as CEO. Mr Lau will lead the Jetstar Hong Kong team with 35 years’ experience in transport, logistics, freight and aviation. Mr Lau will become CEO on 18-Feb-2013 as the carrier prepares for a mid-2013 launch, subject to regulatory approval. Mr Lau said: “Jetstar Hong Kong is set to open up travel opportunities to those who may not have been able to afford to fly in the past. Our airfares will be on average 50 per cent lower than those currently offered by full services carriers. This is an exciting time to be a part of local business that will offer more choice to Hong Kong travellers and will stimulate growth in the airline and tourism sectors.” Mr Lau was previously employed with TNT for more than 10 years holding senior positions across the company, most recently as MD of TNT Hong Kong. His appointment follows the recent announcement of Howard Cheung as the new CFO and the appointment of Ronnie Choi Mow Sang, former president of Hong Kong Express, to the Jetstar Hong Kong board as an independent non-executive director. Tang Bing is Jetstar Hong Kong chairman. [more - original PR]
