Monarch Airlines promotes ex-EasyJet boss to top role

Liz%20Savage%20Monarch%20AirlinesMonarch Airlines has promoted former EasyJet director of business development Liz Savage to the role of managing director for scheduled services. She will take responsibility for marketing as part of her new role.

The move is part of a major expansion plan, which will see two aircrafts added to the Monarch fleet next year, and will also see the appointment of about 100 new members of operational staff.

Savage joined the low-cost airline as managing director of flymonarch.com in February and has taken over the new role following the promotion of Tim Jeans to managing director of the overall airline. Savage is directly responsible for 80 members of staff and reports to Jeans.

At EasyJet, Savage held a variety of management roles before being appointed to the board in 2003. She led the planning for the airline’s acquisition of Go and also launched the airline in Switzerland.

Jeans joined Monarch in 2004, following a seven-year stint at Ryanair. He was responsible for its European expansion, including the launch of its European bases in Brussels and Frankfurt.

He is also a former managing director of airline MyTravelLite.
