Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA) has appointed Chen Sy Yen, who was earlier overseeing operations at Germany, Switzerland and Austria region for the airline, as the new general manager for India, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
Chen Sy Yen takes over from David Lim, who served as the general manager of India for the airline since 2016.
“Since India is a key international market for the Airline, in his new role as General Manager India, Mr. Chen is entrusted with the responsibility of nurturing SIA’s global vision while ensuring the fruition of the company’s business objectives in the country,” the airline said in the statement.
