Delta Air Lines appointed long-time General Electric manager Dan Janki as its new CFO on Friday. The announcement comes as the airline tries to contain losses after the coronavirus pandemic decimated demand for travel.

Former CFO of the airline, Paul Jacobson, left the Atlanta-based airline last year and was appointed CFO of General Motors in October. Gary Chase and Bill Carroll served as interim Co-CFOs at Delta.

Janki, 53, joined General Electric in 1992 and was most recently Senior Vice President and CEO of GE Power Plant. He is due to join Delta on July 12 and will receive annual base pay of $ 650,000 and a cash signing bonus of $ 1.5 million, Delta said in a release.

Delta shares closed down 0.4% at $ 45.21 on Friday, up 12% so far this year.
