Qantas Airways has announced its intent to appoint former IATA and Cathay Pacific Head, Tony Tyler, to its Board of Directors.
The Australian flag carrier will hold a shareholder vote to confirm Tyler’s position, and if approved, he will join the board in October. He will serve as a non-executive director. Tyler’s other current board appointments include BOC Aviation and Bombardier.
Tyler was Director General & CEO of IATA from 2011 to 2016. Prior to that, he served as CEO of Cathay Pacific from 2007-2011, having joined the airline in 1978.
