Spirit Airlines' senior vice president and chief operating officer Tony Lefebvre is leaving the airline to be president and chief operating officer of Aircraft Service International Group, based in Orlando.

Lefebvre, who joined Spirit in 2005, will leave his post at the end of June, the Miramar, Florida-based carrier confirms. Spirit says it has begun searching for Lefebvre's successor.

Aircraft Service International Group, a division of aviation services firm BBA Aviation, provides fuel, ground handling and airport facility and technical services, says its website.

At Spirit, Lefebvre oversees airport, flight, in-flight and technical operations, as well as the operational control centre, says Spirit's website. He also manages customer relations, properties and facilities, cargo, safety and security and environmental concerns.

From 2002 to 2005, Lefebvre was responsible for airport operations, sales, marketing and the European customer service center as managing director of Europe at US Airways.

He was managing director of cargo at US Airways from 1998 to 2002, and held other management positions at the airline.

Lefebvre has a bachelor's degree in marketing from the University of Maryland.
