Tony Tyler has been Cathay Pacific’s high-flyer for 15 years, but at the end of the month he's hanging up his wings.

As the Hong Kong-based airline’s CEO since 2007, he has navigated the company through the turbulent times of recession and record oil prices.

After posting a billion-dollar loss in 2008, Tyler helped to steer the company back into profit in 2009 and broaden its horizons with stronger ties to China and confident multi-million dollar orders for new planes.

He’s also been credited with helping give the airline a more forward-thinking, international outlook, both in terms of its culture and business model.

But after a celebrated career with Cathay Pacific and Swire Group that has seen him work in countries across Asia and Europe he is set to become head of the International Air Transport Association in July.

Now’s your chance to ask the out-going CEO about his management skills, the aviation industry and China’s booming travel market, or just what makes him tick.  Use the comments tag to ask your questions and we’ll put them to him later this week on Executive Insider.
