The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Paris: Alexan­dre de Ju­niac is to re­sign as chair­man and CEO of Air France-KLM to take charge of avi­a­tion in­dus­try group IATA in a sur­prise move an­nounced. Ju­niac helped Europe’s sec­ond-big­gest air­line group re­turn to profit last year for the first time since 2008, but his four-year spell at the helm was also marked by ac­ri­mo­nious re­la­tions with pi­lots. The Franco-Dutch com­pany said it was hop­ing to ap­point Ju­niac’s re­place­ment from Au­gust 1 at the lat­est. “Alexan­dre de Ju­niac will be the first per­son com­ing from a French air­line to lead IATA,” Air France-KLM said in a state­ment.
