Ed Sims, the Airways Corp chief executive responsible for a major step up in the performance of New Zealand's civil aviation services, is leaving in May for a position in an unnamed international organisation.

A former Air New Zealand senior executive, Sims joined Airways in 2011 and has led the government-owned agency through a period of dramatic growth in air services to and from New Zealand and helped launch a new commercial arm of the business, training air traffic controllers from around the world both in New Zealand and through remotely delivered training.

"In his time as chief executive, Ed has raised the profile of Airways internationally through his role as chair of Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), reinvested in essential infrastructure and new technologies, and increased profit from $4.9 million to $23.1 million," said the corporation's chair, Judy Kirk, in statement.

Sims will leave Airways on May 26 and recruitment for a replacement has begun.
