Air Canada has appointed Kevin Howlett as vice-president of regional markets and Arielle Meloul-Wechsler as VP of human resources.

Howlett becomes responsible for the strategic direction of Air Canada's regional operations and for the flag carrier's relationship with regional carriers operating on its behalf. Previously, he oversaw Air Canada's human resources and labour relations functions, and prior to that held similar positions with Air Canada Jazz and Canadian Airlines International.

Wechsler, meanwhile, has been promoted to her new role from a senior director position. She has been with Air Canada since 1997. Prior to her move into human resources, she was assistant general counsel and director of legal services.
