Malaysia Airlines takes note of CEO's 'unexpected' departure, says operations to continue”

Malaysia Airlines Bhd was caught off-guard by the announcement that its chief executive officer (CEO) Peter Bellew would be returning to Irish low-priced airline Ryanair Holdings Plc as the latter's chief operations officer (COO).

Ryanair has announced the appointment of a new chief operating officer to tackle the problems which led to flight cancellations last month.

He joined the Malaysian carrier as COO, during a period when the airline was facing massive financial losses.

It was pointed out in the statement that Bellew had expressed his commitment to Malaysia Airlines when asked by reporters to comment on speculations that he would re-join Ryanair.

Earlier today, worldwide media reported that Bellew would be returning to RyanAir as its Chief Operations Officer on Dec 1, 2017.

"At a press conference with Malaysian and global media on 27 September 2017, Bellew had expressed his commitment to Malaysia Airlines", the Malaysia Airlines statement said.

Ryanair said that he would have "a mission to ensure that the pilot rostering failure which Ryanair suffered in early September will never be repeated".

MAS said operations and services would continue as usual and that the MAS Recovery Plan remained on track. "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 6 years", said Bellew.
