Lufthansa-owned budget carrier BMIbaby has promoted commercial director Julian Carr to the role of managing director.

Carr will succeed Crawford Rix, who last month joined Singapore's Tiger Airways as managing director of its Australian operations.

Carr joined BMIbaby in May 2008, prior to which he was responsible for marketing and business development at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Montreal.

BMI chief Wolfgang Prock-Schauer describes Carr as "the right person to lead the airline into the next stage of BMIbaby's development".
