Rolls-Royce has appointed Anita Frew as a non-executive director and chair designate.
Frew will join the board from 1 July and will succeed Sir Ian Davis as chair on 1 October. Davis will retire from the Board on 30 September 2021, after nearly nine years as chairman.
Rolls-Royce has also appointed Mike Manley as a non-executive director.
Frew is currently chair of Croda, the science, technology and chemicals group and a non-executive director of BHP Group, a global resources company. Until recently she was the deputy chairman and senior independent director of Lloyds Banking Group and has also held chair and board roles in companies in industrial, engineering and utilities sectors.
World2fly, the new long-haul airline recently founded by the Spanish hotel company Iberostar, has taken delivery of the first of two A350-900s on lease from Air Lease Corporation, becoming the latest operator of what Airbus claims is the world’s most efficient large wide body aircraft.
World2fly’s A350-900s feature a modern and highly comfortable single class cabin layout with 432 seats.
Passengers will enjoy more personal space, wide seats and absolute wellbeing on board and appreciate the latest generation in-flight entertainment and connectivity.
The A350 Airspace cabin is the quietest of any twin-aisle aircraft and offers passengers and crew the best flying experience, says Airbus.
