Executive answers call to sort out cancellations
Malaysia Airlines’ chief executive, Peter Bellew, is to return to his old company Ryanair to help it sort out problems with cancellations and pilot rosters.
Bellew will return to the low-cost carrier on December 1 as chief operations officer. He replaces Michael Hickey, who resigned from Ryanair following the debacle over thousands of flight cancellations.
Bellew worked for Ryanair until 2015, most recently as flight operations director. He said: “I am excited to return home to Ryanair and take up the challenge to grow the operation sustainably. I look forward to working with all the team and all the crews I know so well to further develop our growth to 600 aircraft over the next six years.”
In the top job at Malaysia Airlines he was tasked with turning around its fortunes and was recently quoted as saying this would be “the greatest achievement in my life”. As late as last week he was discussing new aircraft orders with Airbus.
However, Ryanair chief Michael O’Leary is believed to have made him an offer he could not refuse, in an attempt to smooth out problems at the airline.
