Zuji, the online travel booking service jointly controlled by major Asia-Pacific airlines, has appointed Scott Blume as its chief executive.
Blume, who will be based in Singapore, has more than 13 years of experience in the travel industry, most recently as chief executive and executive director of Australia-listed ITG, formerly known as the Internet Travel Group. He previously worked as general manager of Carlson Wagonlit Travel Australia.
Blume takes up his new position in January. Zuji, which had a "soft launch" of operations in July in Australia and Singapore, has been without a chief executive since January 2002, when Pascal Bordat resigned after just six months in the job. Since its launch, Zuji says it has registered nearly 100,000 members.
