Scoot announced the appointment of Dennis Basham to the role of General Manager for Australia, effective immediately, following Darren Wright’s move back to Flight Centre.
Dennis brings with him a wealth of airline industry talent, skills and contacts, that the 2 year old airline will utilize as its network grows with the arrival if its first Dreamliners later this year.
His primary focus at Scoot will be to continue to bolster support and new initiatives in trade and distribution, and building on the brand recognition that the airline has built in two short years.
Dennis has spent the past fourteen and a half years building the Virgin Australia group’s products, commencing with Groups and Conferences in 2000, Travel Industry Account Manager in Sydney, National Wholesale Manager and finishing as National Product Manager for Virgin Australia Holidays. Prior to that he worked for Ansett.
