Ryanair COO to step down at the end of 2019

Ryanair has announced its chief operations officer Peter Bellew is to step down at the end of the year.

The announcement was made in a memo by chief executive officer Michael O’Leary, as first reported by Reuters.

Joining Ryanair in December 2017, Bellew was previously chief executive of Malaysia Airlines.

Bellew’s resignation comes amid a restructuring period for the airline as O’Leary prepares to become chief executive of Ryanair’s new group structure, including Lauda and Buzz airlines.

In the memo, O’Leary said: “Bellew has done great work over the past 18 months to improve our operations, renew our engineering team, and significantly improve our operations management and on-time performance.”
