Philippines AirAsia has officially appointed Captain Dexter Comendador as president and chief executive officer effective 10 January 2017.
I’ve had the pleasure of being with Captain Dexter Comendador — or “Captain Dex”, as we fondly call him — on a good number of trips. The most recent of these trips was during the launch of the MNL-TPE direct flights in Taipei just back in November of last year. I first met him during the welcome ceremony of the AirAsia Airbus A320neo in Malaysia.
Always a fun guy to be with, Captain Dex is consistently ready with interesting stories which he would happily share with everyone over coffee and a good meal.
