EasyJet has announced Peter Bellew has resigned as Chief Operating Officer.

In a statement, the airline thanked Mr Bellew for his two-and-a-half-year service and said he plans to ‘pursue other business opportunities’. He resigned on Friday with immediate effect.

David Morgan has been appointed to lead operations as Interim COO, reporting directly into CEO Johan Lundgren.

Mr Morgan has been with easyJet since 2016, including almost a year as Interim COO in 2019 when he oversaw operations, delivering significant improvements in operational performance during that time.

Mr Lundgren said: “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.

“I am pleased that operations will be in the very capable hands of David Morgan who can move seamlessly into this role having previously led the operation, as Interim Chief Operating Officer, throughout 2019.

“David has significant experience and deep knowledge of the business and operation and will provide strong leadership for the airline this summer.”
