Cruz resigns as British Airways CEO, for IAG it is the worst crisis ever
The new manager will be Sean Doyle
The decision is official, today, Monday October 12, 2020, resignation of Alex Cruz from the role of CEO of the British Airways carrier was announced. In his place will be Sean Doyle, current CEO of Aer Lingus; meanwhile, main company of British carrier, IAG, made statements that are not exactly encouraging for the future. Luis Gallego, CEO of International Airlines Group, explained how the current crisis is one of the worst ever, despite the fact that the confidence for what could happen in the coming months is all in all high.
Cruz was thanked for the work done, especially as regards the modernization of British Airways; among other things, the now ex-director will keep a position within the English airline, namely that of non-executive president. Doyle was chosen for his experience instead, as he was with BA for two decades prior to moving to Aer Lingus. The latter carrier, on the other hand, will have Donal Moriarty as its new manager, interim CEO as he has already been chosen for some time as Chief Corporate Affairs Officer (see also the news published by AVIONEWS). Also in the United Kingdom, in recent days the so-called "holiday tax" and its increase, which scares local airlines (read AVIONEWS), has been causing a considerable controversy.
