PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus said on Friday it had accepted the resignation of chief technical officer Jean Botti who will leave the planemaker in April after almost 10 years in the company.

The planemaker said that Botti's succession is "subject to the outcome of a comprehensive review on the future set-up and structure for innovation and research and technology at Airbus Group".

Botti joined Airbus in May 2006. He has notably been pushing through a pioneering project of all-electric aircrafts.
