BA to cut 400 flight crew jobs


Senior cabin positions to go on long and short haul routes

Article comments

UK flag carrier British Airways (BA) has said it would be cutting 400 senior cabin crew jobs via a programme of voluntary redundancies.

In a statement on Tuesday, BA owner International Airlines Group (IAG) said it had now commenced a 90-day consultation process with the first of the cuts expected to take effect from March 2013.

Last month, IAG sister carrier Iberia announced wholesale restructuring measures potentially leading to the loss of 4,500 jobs.

A spokesperson for BA said the job cuts would affect senior cabin crew staff who worked on either its long or short haul routes, but not those who worked across both.

The airline employs 14,000 cabin crew staff and was embroiled in bitter labour dispute for much of 2010 and 2011. Iberia and BA merged to form IAG in 2011.
