Air Asia has appointed a new manager of public relations and communications, Kris Taute.

Taute joins the airline from his previous role as a senior public relations manager at Transport for NSW.

Prior to joining Transport for NSW, Taute was an associate director at Hill+Knowlton Strategies for eight months.

He has also worked at Destination NSW and Tourism New Zealand.

Taute said in a statement to Mumbrella: “I am truly excited to be joining such a talented communications team, both here in Australia and New Zealand and across our global markets.
