In October 2020, Alex Cruz, who was the CEO of British Airways announced he was resigning from his position. After his resignation, the airline organization announced a new person – Sean Doyle, to take over from Cruz.
The last mentioned, who was the CEO of Irish carrier Aer Lingus is required to help ‘move’ the outfit with his 20-years’ experience handling key senior business functions in BA.
Interestingly, Sean’s appointment is to some degree, an insider thing, since both British Airways and Aer Lingus are owned by the Anglo-Spanish multinational airline holding organization, International Consolidated Airlines (IAG).
Having picked up experience running a carrier at Aer Lingus, this position is by all accounts a recognizable one for him.
Sean has a colossal task to manage affairs, particularly when the Covid pandemic has left it working around a fourth of its typical timetable, with two of its greatest business sectors—transoceanic flights and the superior portion—especially hard hit by the Covid-19 emergency.
Much is relied upon the new CEO to reshape British Airways for altogether different future economic situations.
He will need to invest time in persuading workers regarding the need of the ongoing intense actions while attempting to assure them about their future- something which is hard to do given the huge vulnerability being looked by all carriers.
