Thng to become Vistara's new CEO as Yeoh returns to SIA
New Delhi, July 12, 2017

Indian full-service carrier Vistara has announced the appointment of Leslie Thng as CEO of the airline from October 2017. He succeeds current CEO Phee Teik Yeoh, who will return to Singapore Airlines (SIA) to take up a senior appointment.



Thng started his career in SIA and has held many senior positions in the company. Prior to being the chief commercial officer for Budget Aviation Holdings (the holding company of budget carrier Scoot), he was chief executive of SilkAir.


Vistara, which began its first commercial flight in January 2015, is partly owned by SIA in a joint venture with Tata Sons.
