EasyJet Executive Resigns After Major Flight Disruptions

EasyJet announced on Monday that its chief operating officer had resigned following a string of flight cancellations and disruptions at the airline in recent weeks.

Peter Bellew, EasyJet’s chief operating officer, had officially resigned to pursue other business opportunities after about three years in his role but will remain with the company to “ensure a smooth transition”.

David Morgan, EasyJet’s chief operating officer before Bellew’s appointment, will take over the position again after Bellew’s departure.

Johan Lundgren, EasyJet’s chief executive, said the airline was focused on providing a safe and reliable operation this summer.

“I would like to thank Peter for his hard work and wish him well. Everyone at EasyJet remains absolutely focused on delivering a safe and reliable operation this summer. [Morgan] has significant experience and deep knowledge of the business and operation and will provide strong leadership for the airline this summer,” Lundgren said.

EasyJet has been forced to cancel thousands of flights amid staff shortages over the summer months this year.
