As the advice by medical physicians to take a medical leave of absence for a minimum of 2-3 months would have an impact on the duties of the president and on company operations, Kasemsuvan has, therefore, submitted his resignation from the position of THAI president, as well as from Nok Air’s board of directors and the THAI Smile board of directors.

As such, the THAI board of directors has approved and accepted the resignation of Kasemsuvan, after having considered that Kasemsuvan has demonstrated much diligence in the duties of the president since taking this position in 2012, and having considered the medical reasons for the resignation and potential impact to the company. The date for the resignation to take effect shall be from 2 January 2014.

For the interim, the THAI Board has appointed Chokchai Panyayong, senior executive vice president of commercial to be acting THAI president, effective from 2 January 2014.
