Meanwhile, Gillian Tans has been appointed into the new position of chairwoman of Booking.com and out of her former CEO role of the website, effective immediately, the company said Wednesday.

Aside from Booking.com, Booking Holdings oversees KAYAK, priceline.com, agoda.com, Rentalcars.com and OpenTable.
