Malaysia Airlines chairman Mohamed Munir Abdul Majid is to step down from his post on July 31. when his contract expires, Aerospace Diary learns.

The loss-making flag carrier is restructuring its management personnel. 

Munir became chairman of the airline in August 2004. No reason was given for his resignation. The airline’s senior general manager Bernard Francis stepped down from his post a few weeks ago.

Aerospace Diary met the dynamic Chairman at a SITA conference recently where he was a key speaker. Munir had definite views on budget carriers and their pricing. MAS had also announced it would be looking at cloud computing, becoming the first airline to make a committment.

Presently, Munir is visiting professor at the London School of Economics.
