Wilson will be based at the Singapore Airlines London office in Chiswick and brings with him a wealth of valuable aviation and management experience from his previous Singapore Airlines posts. He arrives from Seoul, where he spent two years fulfilling a similar role as Singapore Airlines’ General Manager – Korea.

Originally from Malaysia, he joined Singapore Airlines over a decade ago, in June 2001, and has since held a variety of roles, based in the company’s Singapore head office and overseas.

Prior to Korea, he was state manager in Chubu, Nagoya, Japan and has also spent time in passenger sales, company planning and the commercial technology divisions.

Wilson said: “I am delighted to have returned to the UK and to be leading the Singapore Airlines teams within the UK and Ireland. This year is set to be a big year for us as we continue to build on our four daily and daily frequencies from London Heathrow and Manchester respectively, while also launching our new aircraft cabin interiors.

“A dynamic market, there are many lively political debates around UK and Irish aviation at the moment and I am looking forward to continuing Singapore Airlines’ role as a supportive partner and industry leader in this respect.”
