Polynesian Airlines has a new CEO.

Former Controller of the airline Taua Fata Tielu has been appointed to replace John Fitzgerald who resigned soon after the merger between Polynesian and Virgin Blue.

A statement by the Prime Minister's press secretariat says there were three applications for the position and the Polynesian Airlines board has unanimously selected Taua.

Taua, who was born and educated in Samoa, joined the airline in 2003
