CEO of Swiss resigns

The chief executive of the national airline, Swiss, has announced his resignation pending a legal inquiry.
Andr� Dos� said he had taken the decision because the Federal Prosecutor's Office was planning to open an investigation against him over the crash of a plane owned by the now defunct regional carrier, Crossair in 2001.
Dos�, who has been in charge of Swiss since its launch two years ago, said he was acting in the interest of his staff.
However, he rejected accusations that lax security measures at Crossair led to the plane crash near Zurich, which killed 24 people.

Yet the Swiss aren't looking at the people who ran swissair and bought the entertainment system. Unbelievable.

Swiss chief steps down over crash inquiry

swissinfo March 10, 2004 7:24 PM





Andr� Dos�, the chief executive of Switzerland�s embattled national airline, Swiss, has stepped down.

Swiss said Dos� had vacated his post after becoming entangled in an investigation into an airline crash three years ago that left 24 people dead.

The shock announcement comes less than two weeks before the airline is due to announce its full-year results.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the carrier�s board said chairman Pieter Bouw would take over Dos�'s responsibilities on an interim basis with immediate effect.

The board thanked Dos� for his efforts in building the airline, formed from the rump of Swissair, which collapsed in late 2001.

�Andr� Dos� led Swiss through the most turbulent times, and he managed - despite difficult overall conditions - to initiate a turnaround,� the airline said in a statement.

Swiss newspapers are questioning swiss CEO's resignation:

Press raises questions about Dos� resignation

swissinfo March 11, 2004 9:53 AM




Dos�'s resignation dominated the Swiss media (swissinfo)
Swiss newspapers said on Thursday the resignation of Andr� Dos�, chief executive of the airline Swiss, was inevitable but begged a number of questions.

Dos� resigned over an investigation into a Crossair plane crash three years ago, which killed 24 people. He was in charge of the airline at the time.


The �Tribune de Gen�ve� commented that Dos�s resignation had not come as a surprise.

�The head of Swiss had been living under permanent pressure� and the recent decision by the federal prosecutor to open criminal proceedings against the former bosses of Crossair in the Bassersdorf crash affair tipped the balance.�

The �Berner Zeitung� echoed the thoughts of the Geneva newspaper.

�Dos� was also responsible in his capacity as the head of Crossair. And therefore he had become a heavy burden. An airline boss who is linked to insufficient security cannot be tolerated because security and trust are the be all and end all of an airline,� it stated.

�Out of his depth�

The Berner Zeitung added that there could be another reason for Dos�s resignation. There was much to suggest, it commented, that the board of directors wanted to be rid of him.

�It was evident that Dos� was out of his depth. Added to that, he had lost the trust of the banks and the politicians.�

Dos� investigated over fatal plane crash

swissinfo March 12, 2004 10:25 AM




Dos� finds himself in the firing line once again. The Federal Prosecutor�s Office is to investigate Andr� Dos�, the former head of the national airline, Swiss, over a plane crash two years ago in which 24 people died.

The former director of the Federal Office for Civil Aviation, Andr� Auer, has also been placed under investigation.

The Prosecutor�s Office announced on Friday that it was widening its probe into the fatal crash of a Crossair jet near Zurich airport in November 2001.

It opened a criminal investigation last month into possible negligent homicide and grievous bodily harm by negligence.

Dos� was in charge of the former regional carrier, Crossair, at the time of the crash. Two other senior Crossair executives have also been named as part of the judicial inquiry.

The rise and fall of Andr� Dos�

swissinfo March 12, 2004 8:19 AM





Andr� Dos� rose rapidly through the ranks of Crossair and later became CEO of Swiss � one of the most visible and difficult jobs in Switzerland.

His resignation marks the end of an era at Switzerland�s embattled national airline.
Dos� was born in 1957 in Bolligen, near the Swiss capital, Bern. As a child he was fascinated by flying and gained his private pilot�s licence at the age of 17.

After a spell in the Biel Verkehrsschule, a college specialising in transport, Dos� worked on the ground staff for the then national airline, Swissair.
