Malaysia Airlines expands presence in Australia

Malaysia Airlines has reinforced its commitment to the Australian market off the back of a very successful third quarter.

The carrier has confirmed the appointment of Donna Jones to the position of sales executive for Western Australia, Michaela Kemp as sales executive South Australia and the Northern Territory, and Melinda Voon as brand and communication manager.

With a combined 28 years’ experience, Jones and Kemp will manage and develop all sales channels within their regions and build strong relationships with key trade partners.

Jones has held similar positions at Flight Centre and Trafalgar Western Australia while Kemp was previously at Garuda Indonesia and Air Paradise.

Voon also brings a rich background in tourism, communications and marketing to Malaysia Airlines, having worked in the industry for 18 years.

Most recently, she oversaw marketing and communications for Tourism Malaysia Sydney.

Malaysia Airlines regional manager for Australia, New Zealand and South West Pacific, Bennet Stephens, said the airline is thrilled to further expand its team in Australia, its most important market outside of Malaysia.

“We are continuing to see strong loyalty from passengers across the country resulting in excellent load factors,” Stephens said.

“We have a number of exciting developments taking place across Australia in 2017 and know that Melinda, Michaela and Donna, with their wealth of industry knowledge, will make a valuable contribution to our business,” he concluded.
