KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) is implementing its Target Operating Model (TOM), which sees the group operating as a full-fledged operating company (op-co) overseeing group-level support functions and subsidiaries.

In a statement today, the airline said the group-level support functions and subsidiaries have been grouped into three dedicated profit centres, namely airlines, loyalty and travel solutions, as well as aviation services.

MAG group chief executive officer Captain Izham Ismail said the new set-up will allow the group to have a more dynamic reporting structure under each profit centre, including dedicated aviation services functions to drive revenue growth and promote better synergy to fulfill its long-term business plan 2.0.

"While the existing structure has enabled us to futureproof, we continue implementing a strong and flexible organisational structure that will set the group up for long-term success,” he added.

In line with the new structure, the leadership team at the op-co level will continue to lead the group, supported by the chief executive officers in the respective profit centres.

With the new organisational structure, the MAG senior leadership team has also been enhanced for better reporting across the group and business verticals, it added.

MAG said the airlines business portfolio will oversee the group’s global, domestic and segmented airlines comprising Malaysia Airlines, Firefly, MASwings, and Amal.

Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi will take on the role of chief executive officer (CEO) of Airlines, supported by the chief operating officers (COO) of the respective subsidiaries namely Captain Nasaruddin A. Bakar for Malaysia Airlines; Captain Hamdan Che Ismail for Firefly; Suresh Singam for MASwings; and Muhammad Najmi Mansor for Amal.

The loyalty and travel solutions portfolio covers MAG’s end-to-end travel solutions and loyalty programmes, complementing its established strength and expertise in the airline and aviation service businesses, including Journify, MHholidays, Firefly Holidays, and Enrich.

MAG said Philip See will oversee the portfolio as CEO of loyalty and travel solutions, double hatting the role of group chief sustainability officer.

The aviation services portfolio covers cargo, ground handling, training, and maintenance, repair and overhaul, comprising MABkargo, AeroDarat Services, MAB Academy and MAB Engineering and Mohd Nadziruddin Mohd Basri will be CEO, supported by Mark Jason Thomas, MABkargo CEO.

Mohd Nadziruddin will also be supported by COOs of other subsidiaries, Ibrahim Salleh for AeroDarat Services; Aida Salfaraz for MAB Academy, following the retirement of Captain Kamarudin Kamilin in February 2023, and Eke Nazri Rahim for MAB Engineering. - Bernama
