    Last month, AirAsia said it was considering options for its leasing arm, Asia Aviation Capital, including a potential sale. Reuters has reported that AirAsia values the leasing unit at 4.1 billion ringgit ($1.01 billion).

    Daillencourt was most recently at GE Capital Aviation Services Ltd (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of U.S. conglomerate General Electric (GE.N).
