Tiger Airways Holdings has named a new group chief executive, Koay Peng Yen, with effect from 10 August.

Koay will take over from Chin Yau Seng who is returning to Singapore Airlines, following his posting to Tiger in July last year.

Tiger Airways says Chin helped to stabilise the company during a "tumultuous" period, when its Australian operation was grounded over safety issues.

Koay previously had senior management positions with Pacific Carriers, PaxOcean Engineering Group and NOL Group.
