In end November 2016, Malaysia Airlines announced a plan to invest in a talent pipeline and local succession planning, of which efforts are expected to intensify come 2017.

“Malaysia Airlines commenced a management development programme for its staff that will intensify in Q2 2017. The end goal is that the future generation of leaders for the airline will be recruited entirely from Malaysian talent within,” said the company in a statement.

As part of the plan, the succession for all of the key senior managers has been identified and programmes are in place to ensure a smooth transition. The development of Malaysian leadership succession is one of the two primary tasks for the MAB CEO, along with the successful turnaround of Malaysia Airlines.

Malaysia Airlines recently appointed Captain Izham Ismail as the chief operations officer. He began his career with Malaysia Airlines as a trained pilot in 1979 and has risen through the ranks serving in various departments such as Director of Operations and CEO of MASwings.

In addition, Malaysia Airlines continues to invest in new talent via its management trainee programme. A second group of management trainees joined in September 2016.

The second Works Council Conference was held on 16th August. All members attended the session to present their progress and showcase some of the issues identified and solved as well as highlight issues that require further attention.
