Jet2 parent Dart Group has applied to Companies House to change its name to Jet2 plc.
It comes after Dart disposed of its distribution and logistics business Fowler Welch earlier this year, making the firm’s sole interest its leisure travel brands.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays chief executive Steve Heapy has been appointed Jet2 plc chief executive.
Philip Meeson will remain in post as executive chair.
No firm date has been set for the change of name application to be completed owing to delays at Companies House arising from its response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Meeson will address the company’s annual general meeting on Thursday (3 September).
