Malaysia Airlines chief executive to leave


Christoph Mueller to depart airline in September
Christoph Mueller, the former Lufthansa and Aer Lingus executive who took the helm at struggling Malaysia Airlines, will step down in September, well before his three-year contract comes to an end.
Malaysia Airlines said in a statement that its chief executive was departing due to “his changing personal circumstances”. He will serve a six-month notice period to September 2016, though he has expressed a wish to stay on as a non-executive director.
“We are very disappointed to lose Christoph as CEO but we fully understand his reasons and respect his need to do this,” chairman Md Nor Yusof said.
Mueller formally took on the chief executive position in May 2015, leading restructuring efforts after twin disasters in 2014, in March (MH370) and July (MH17).
