Owen held the position of director of people at the airline for the last five years. Earlier, he has held various leadership roles at the airline and at other Swire Group companies.
Besides Owen, the airline has made a couple of other important appointments. Nelson Chin has assumed the role of regional general manager North East Asia and will be based in Tokyo.
