Condor's CEO is stepping down after five years - with the UK Managing Director of the sea travel provider's new backer, Brittany Ferries, set to take on his role.

John Napton, who currently sits on the Board of Directors for Condor, will be starting as Chief Executive on 1 July.

Paul Luxon, who oversaw the sale of the company to a consortium involving Brittany Ferries in 2019/2020, will be leaving his role at the end of June.

Mr Luxon said: "I leave in place a strong, talented and capable executive leadership team, who are all committed to the strategy and business plan and serving our customers.

"The company is in a strong position and its new fleet concept is the right model to deliver the right services for the period following the change in ownership and the reinvigoration of the Channel Islands post-covid."

Mr Napton said: "Despite challenging times, Condor will continue to be the lifeblood of the Channel Islands providing essential services, connecting people and delivering freight.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead Condor through the rebuilding stage post-covid, working with our key stakeholders to ensure that the Island economies bounce back.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank Paul for all his hard work in navigating the ship through the current crisis."
