Virgin Australia chief Jayne Hrdlicka to step down as CEO, airline confirms

Jayne Hrdlicka, the chief executive of Virgin Australia, has announced she is stepping down from her role.

Ms Hrdlicka made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon as the airline announced a return to profitability over the 2023 financial year and what they said was a “strong” first half of the 2024 financial year.

“After nearly four years of intensive work and transformation since the dual challenges of Administration and the onset of Covid-19, Jayne has decided that now is the right juncture to ensure that succession is in place to see the company through a future IPO and beyond,” Virgin Australia said in a statement.

“The Board of Virgin Australia will shortly commence a global search process for a new CEO.”

More to come.
