oneworld CEO Bruce Ashby has made himself available to stay at oneworld’s helm until June to enable a seamless handover to his successor.

After accepting his resignation, the oneworld Governing Board began an appointment process to fill his position. Candidates from within the alliance and from outside will be considered.

Announcing his decision to move on, Bruce Ashby said: “It has been a privilege to lead oneworld and work with its collection of the world’s leading airlines, but after five years in this role it makes sense for me to move on at this time.”
