MyTravel FDs land 'fat cat' pay-offs

The finance directors of troubled tour operator company MyTravel received big pay-offs when they left the company - despite the fact the firm had lost hundreds of millions of pounds.

Claims in The Observer newspaper, state that Kazia Kanto, who quit as finance director last August after nine months in the job was paid £606,000.

This was the equivalent to 23 months of her base salary despite being on a 12-month contract.

Her predecessor David Jardine received £844,000 after less than three, equal to 27 months’ salary. He was on a 24-month contract.

MyTravel said the payments included entitlement to benefits. Criics claimed the payments were ‘rewards for failure’.

Last December MyTravel, formerly known as Airtours, posted a loss of £910.9m.
