Wednesday, 06. July 2022 15:59

British Airways appointed on Wednesday Rene de Groot as the new chief operating officer, according to a CEO's email to the company staff.

Rene has worked for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and will resign from his position as COO on July 15, the Dutch airline officially confirmed earlier today. The British carrier's CEO Sean Doyle noted he is confident Rene will "help us to rebuild our airline and become a better BA" as he already held the same position in his last company.

The news came after Doyle previously announced plans to make changes in key management roles at British Airways amid recent cancelations of flights and disruptions caused by staff strikes.
