Thomas Cook product and aviation director for scheduled business David Robinson has become the latest senior figure to announce his departure from the business.


Staff have been informed that Robinson will leave at the end of the year.


Robinson, who reported to deputy managing director of scheduled business Steve Barrass, was product and commercial director of Gold Medal when the company was purchased by Thomas Cook in 2008.


He had previously worked at Airline Network, which merged with Gold Medal in 1999.


Robinson is the latest in a string of high profile departures at the travel giant following last year’s well-publicised financial problems and the arrival of new chief executive Harriet Green.


A spokesman said the decision was “mutual and amicable” and Robinson would be working to the end of his notice period.


Barrass said: “Thomas Cook Scheduled Business has come a long way since we merged with Gold Medal back in 2008, and David has played a big part in developing the product strategy. 


“We’d like to thank David for his contribution and we wish him well in the future.”


Travel Weekly broke the news last week that mainstream chief executive Ian Ailles and independent business chief executive Phil Aird-Mash are to leave the company at the end of the year.
