Captain Dexter Comendador officially appointed Philippines AirAsia President and CEO

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.
