The CEO of British Airways, Alex Cruz, has stepped down, the airline's parent company International Airlines Group (IAG) said Monday.
Cruz, who was appointed chairman and chief executive of the flag-carrying airline in 2016, will be replaced by Sean Doyle, the CEO of Aer Lingus, the Dublin-based airline also owned by IAG.
BA's new CEO Doyle worked for British Airways for 20 years in various roles including as director of network, fleet, and alliances, before becoming Aer Lingus' chief executive in January 2019.
IAG chief executive Luis Gallego said British Airways was "navigating the worst crisis faced in our industry."
The airline, which employs 42,000 people, announced plans to cut up to 12,000 jobs in April. This has since been increased to 13,000.
