Struggling Flybe has appointed a former easyJet executive to run the regional airline as current boss Jim French steps down after 12 years in the role.

Mr French is credited with turning Flybe into a major player in European aviation. He will be replaced by Saad Hammad, a chief commercial officer at easyJet from 2005 to April 2009.
