EasyJet to cut over 700 pilot jobs, says union
LONDON (UK) – British low cost airline easyJet has said that 727 UK-based pilots are at risk of redundancy. It is equivalent to about one-third of its pilots in the country, union BALPA said in a statement.
The airline is proposing to close its bases at London’s Stansted and Southend airports and at Newcastle in north east England, BALPA said, adding that it was shocked by the magnitude of the job cuts.
EasyJet said in May it needed to cut 4,500 jobs to stay afloat after the coronavirus pandemic caused a travel market slump.
