Brussels Airlines CEO Peter Gerber has resigned after less than two years in charge of the Belgian carrier.
Parent company Lufthansa Group said that Gerber, who was also Lufthansa’s chief representative for European affairs, left the group on Tuesday (31 January) and would be replaced at Brussels Airlines by Christina Foerster on an “interim basis”.
Foerster, who is a member of the Lufthansa Group’s executive board, has previously held the roles of chief commercial officer and CEO at Brussels Airlines between 2016 and 2020.
Gerber, who started his career at Lufthansa Group in 1992, had been leading Brussels Airlines since March 2021.
Lufthansa Group added that a long-term successor to Gerber as Brussels Airlines’s CEO would be “found as soon as possible”.
