Along with him are commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA's Tim Kopra.
The team undocked from the International Space Station at 5.51am and separated a minute later. They are preparing to re-enter the atmosphere at a speed 28,800km/h.
If everything goes according to plan, they should land in Kazakhstan later this morning.
Even though Tim Peake is leaving, the ISS has been left in good hands.
