Bangkok--23 Jan--thanaburin
Qantas has announced the appointment of Benjamin Tan as Regional General Manager Asia, based in Singapore.
Benjamin Tan, previously Group Head of Sales at the Jetstar Group, will steer the commercial, financial and operational performance for Qantas across its Asian markets (excluding Japan).

He joins Qantas’ team in Asia at an exciting time, as the airline launched the first of its upgraded international A330 aircraft from Singapore. The new A330 features Marc Newson designed Business Suites with the world’s first gate-to-gate recline, new model Recaro seats in Economy, and larger, more advanced screens to support Qantas’ upgraded inflight entertainment offering.

In taking up the new position, Mr Tan says he is looking forward to progressing Qantas’ commitment to Asia.
“Asia is an incredibly important market for Qantas. Over the last two years, we’ve redesigned our Asia network to strengthen our position in the region,” said Mr Tan.

“We’ve opened new lounges in Hong Kong and Singapore, are introducing a new inflight dining experience in Economy, and continue to expand our reach with our airline partners, providing greater access across Asia than ever before.

“These exciting initiatives will continue to position Qantas as the airline of choice for so many who travel to Australia”.

Benjamin Tan brings extensive experience working internationally in Beijing and Tokyo, across the technology and aviation sectors. Most recently, Mr Tan was responsible for worldwide revenue, market share and business expansion across the Jetstar-branded group of airlines, where he also directly managed a team based in 11 cities across the Asia Pacific. He is an alumnus of The University of Chicago Booth School of Business and the National University of Singapore.

Qantas operates more than 75 return services per week between Asia and Australia, operated by a mix of A330, refurbished B747 and during peak seasons, A380 aircraft.
Nick McGlynn, former Regional General Manager Asia, has returned to Australia to take up a new role as Head of Global Sales and Network at Qantas Freight.
