ComairBusinessLive reports that Comair, the operator of low-cost airline kulula.com and British Airways (BA) in SA, announced on Tuesday that two of its senior executives were leaving the company.  

Comair said in a statement that it was "rightsizing the group and refreshing its executive team in an orderly and carefully considered process".  It announced that Glenn Orsmond, the head of airlines, which is the company’s largest division, had accepted a retrenchment package.  He has already left the company and would not be replaced, so his position has become redundant.  Operations director Martin Louw has taken early retirement.  Louw — a former pilot, training captain, fleet captain, chief pilot and flight operations director — had been with Comair since July 1996.  Comair advised that Orsmond and Louw would cease to be members of the company’s board.
