Findlay handed in his notice on Tuesday (26 May) and will continue with his existing responsibilities until May 2021 under the terms of his contract, while the British low-cost airline looks to replace him during that time.
Findlay has been with the company for almost six years.
Commenting on the announcement, CEO Johan Lundgren said: “Since I joined in 2017, Andrew and I have worked extremely well together.
“As the longest-standing member of the Airline Management Board, Andrew has and continues to provide solid financial steerage and guidance. This has been particularly so during recent months when he was quick to secure liquidity and deliver a significant reduction in cash burn.
“I speak on behalf of my fellow colleagues in that we will be sorry to see him leave next year, however, we all look forward to working with Andrew over the coming 12 months as we successfully steer easyJet through these unprecedented times for the industry.
“I would like to thank Andrew for his continued contribution to ensure the long-term success of EasyJet.”
Commenting on his departure, Andrew Findlay said: “Although I have given notice to leave EasyJet in a year’s time, I remain fully committed to the business to support Johan and to ensure EasyJet successfully weathers this unprecedented time for the airline industry.
“By the end of my notice period I will have been with this great company for almost six years and it will be the right time to pass the financial reins to someone who will help take EasyJet into its next chapter.”
