René de Groot Resigns as Chief Operating Officer of KLM



René de Groot has informed KLM’s Supervisory Board that he will be stepping down as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of KLM effective 15 July, thus bidding farewell to KLM.


This announcement follows his decision to take up a position with another airline.


René de Groot was appointed COO in November 2014 and began his first term as a member of KLM’s statutory Board of Managing Directors in April 2015. He was reappointed in 2019, with his second term originally due to end in 2023.


In addition to his role as COO, De Groot carries responsibility for KLM’s Air Operator Certificate in relation to the Dutch Civil Aviation Authority. He will also resign from this position effective 15 July.


About his resignation, René de Groot said: "After 32 fantastic years at KLM, I have decided to spread my wings and continue my career at British Airways as Chief Operating Officer.


I realise that my departure comes at a turbulent time for KLM, but I leave the airline in the knowledge that the road to recovery has begun and that the organisation will be able to do so despite the continuing challenges.


I thank KLM for all the opportunities I have been given and all my colleagues and partners for their confidence, cooperation and what I have been able to learn from them. That and all the fond memories I have will always stay with me in my career moving forward."


As a result of René's departure, KLM’s Supervisory Board has initiated the procedure to find a successor. KLM hopes to be able to fill the vacancy at short notice.


The airline says that safeguarding the responsibilities and tasks of the Chief Operating Officer is assured within the organisation.


René de Groot will be joining British Airways as its new Chief Operating Officer with effect from October, 2022.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
