The driving force behind South Africa's Mango Airlines, CEO Nico Bezuidenhout, has resigned. He is to join a European airline with an announcement expected later today.

Bezuidenhout, grew Mango into a successful profitable airline before being appointed Acting CEO of South African Airways (SAA). After implementing a turnaround plan at SAA he returned to Mango. Two other members of the senior leadership team of Mango have also quit in recent months.

In an interview with Travel News, Bezuidenhout said, "I have been looking for international exposure for a number of years and this has now come across my path. Recent happenings in the aviation industry may have contributed to a small extent, but it has been my plan all along."

He said that his decision was 100 percent and categorically not a reflection on the financial state of Mango.

He is expected to begin his new role on November 1.
