Jetstar Asia chief executive Phit Lian Chong is stepping down, effective February 1 next year. She will remain on the Jetstar Asia board.

Ms Chong leaves the role after six years to pursue opportunities outside of the aviation sector.

Paul Daff, most recently head of the Qantas Group Jetconnect subsidiary in New Zealand, will serve as interim Jetstar Asia chief executive.

A founding senior executive of Jetstar Asia for three years, Mr Daff was formerly the airline’s Head of Commercial and has extensive experience in the aviation industry.

Jetstar Asia chairman Dennis Choo said the executive search for a Singaporean-national chief executive was well-advanced, with an announcement expected in early 2012.

Jetstar Asia posted its largest profit to-date in 2010/11 of SGD18 million (normalised PBT) – the same year it achieved a 46% increase in capacity and carried 2.7 million passengers.

It currently flies to 27 destinations and has a fleet of 16 A320s.
