The company noted that Stephen Heapy, already chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays since 2013, now holds the same role in the PLC, while Philip Meeson will remain its executive chairman.
In a trading update, the company said the Jet2 airline flew to 40% of its planned destinations in August, while winter forward bookings have yet to match the revised on-sale seat capacity so it is keeping prices low to attract customers.
Summer 2021 is expected to see a higher level of seat capacity, closer to 2019 levels, the group added.
As of August 28, 202, the group had cash in the bank of £1bn, or £629mln excluding customer deposits, while £300mln of funding under the Bank of England‘s Covid Corporate Financing Facility are also still available.
Shares advanced 2% to 691.5p early on Thursday.
