Borghetti to leave aviation after 45 yrs
VIRGIN Australia ceo John Borghetti has “had his fill of airlines,” and is likely to find a role outside of the aviation sector when he leaves VA next year.
Speaking on the sidelines of the CAPA Centre for Aviation conference in Sydney yesterday, Borghetti said he’d had a number of approaches after announcing his departure from the carrier at the end of 2019 ( TD 12 Jun).
“Right now I don’t want to think about it, because I’ve still got work to do here,” he said.
He also said Virgin had written to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission raising issues about the tie-up between former alliance partner Air NZ and Qantas ( TD 01 Jun).
He told delegates a particular issue was the QF code being placed on Air NZ domestic flights despite Jetstar also having a New Zealand domestic operation.
