Malaysia Airlines' parent unveils new structure

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) has unveiled a new organisational structure that it says will help deliver its Long-Term Business Plan 2.0 in a more cohesive and unified manner.

The new structure sees MAG operating as a full-fledged operating company (op-co), while its subsidiaries are grouped into three dedicated profit centres namely airlines, loyalty and travel solutions, and aviation services.

"With the new organisational structure, the MAG senior leadership team has also been enhanced for better reporting across the Group and business verticals," it said on Wednesday.

"The new set up allows MAG to have a more dynamic reporting structure under each profit centre," MAG group chief executive officer Captain Izham Ismail said.

"While the existing structure has enabled us to be futureproof, we continue implementing a strong and flexible organisational structure that will set the Group up for long-term success," he added.

The leadership team at the op-co level will continue to lead the group, supported by the CEOs in the respective profit centres.

The airlines business portfolio will oversee MAG's global, domestic and segmented airlines comprising Malaysia Airlines, Firefly, MASwings and AMAL.

Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi will take on the role of CEO of airlines, supported by chief operating officers (COO) of the respective subsidiaries: Captain Nasaruddin A. Bakar for Malaysia Airlines; Captain Hamdan Che Ismail for Firefly; Suresh Singam for MASwings; and Muhammad Najmi Mansor for AMAL.

The travel solutions and loyalty portfolio will complement MAG's strength and expertise in the airline and aviation service businesses. This includes Journify, MHholidays, Firefly Holidays, and Enrich.

Philip See will oversee the portfolio as CEO of loyalty and travel solutions, double hatting the role of group chief sustainability officer.

The portfolio covering cargo, ground handling, training and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) consists of MABkargo, AeroDarat Services, MAB Academy and MAB Engineering.

It will be overseen by Mohd Nadziruddin Mohd Basri as the CEO of aviation services , supported by the CEO of MABkargo Mark Jason Thomas and COOs of other subsidiaries: Ibrahim Salleh for AeroDarat Services; Aida Salfaraz for MAB Academy (following the retirement of Captain Kamarudin Kamilin in February 2023) and Eke Nazri Rahim for MAB Engineering.
