The Director of Punja Group of Companies in Fiji, Rajesh Punja, has been appointed the new Fiji Airways Group chairman.

Replacing former chairman Nalin Patel, Mr Punja was appointed following the company's annual general meeting in Nadi where a new company director was also appointed.

The Fiji Times reports the new director for Fiji Airways Group is Industry, Trade and Tourism permanent secretary Shaheen Ali, who replaces former Fiji Airways managing director Stefan Pichler.

The national airline also says the three remaining board directors will continue their term.
