New Flybe chief executive Saad Hammad has rung the changes with a shake-up of the airline's board and senior management.
Mike Rutter, managing director of Flybe Outsourcing Solutions, Andrew Strong, managing director of Flybe UK, and Mark Chown, director of corporate strategy, have stepped down from the board with immediate effect.
They will continue to report to Mr Hammad, whose former easyJet colleague Paul Simmons will join Flybe as chief commercial officer on October 28.
Mr Simmons joins from easyJet where he was director of UK market since returning to the airline in 2009, with responsibility for the commercial programme and revenue delivery across its 11 bases and 110 aircraft in the country.
Flybe will be hoping to capitalise on his experience of playing a lead role in transforming the UK from one of easyJet's worst performing territories to one of its strongest.
Meanwhile, Andrew Knuckey, Flybe's chief financial officer since 2007, has decided to step down from the board and will leave the company as soon as a successor is appointed and a handover period completed.
Mr Knuckey played a lead role in the acquisition of BA Connect in 2007, the IPO on the London Stock Exchange in 2010 and, more recently, the design and implementation of the first phases of Flybe's turnaround plan.
