EasyJet’s chief operating officer resigns

Peter Belleau, EasyJet’s chief operating officer, resigned this summer after battling last-minute cancellations and major schedule changes.

Bellevue, who has held the position for two and a half years, resigned on Friday (July 1) “to pursue other business opportunities.” David Morgan has been appointed to lead the operation as interim COO, reported directly to Joachim Lundgren, CEO of EasyJet.

Morgan has been with EasyJet since 2016 and previously spent nearly a year as interim COO in 2019 when he also oversaw operations.

Lundgren added: “Everyone at EasyJet is focused on providing a safe and reliable operation this summer.

“I am pleased that the operations will remain in the highly skilled hands of David Morgan who can lead this operation seamlessly throughout 2019 as the interim chief operating officer.

“David has significant experience and in-depth knowledge of business and operations and will provide strong leadership for the airline this summer.”

The airline said it had “taken pre-approved steps to create more resilience for the summer”. EasyJet stressed that it still operates up to 1,700 daily flights, despite spending its schedule at key airports such as London Gatwick and Amsterdam Schiphol.
