Virgin Atlantic have announced that they plan to cut a further 1,150 jobs less than four months since they axed 3,150 positions.
The airline said in a statement that they job cuts are part of “further downsizing across the business,” due to the collapse in demand caused by the pandemic.
Virgin Atlantic has started a 45-day consultation period with unions Balpa and Unite.
Chief executive Shai Weiss said, “After the sacrifices so many of our people have made, further reducing the number of people we employ is heart-breaking but essential for survival.
“I truly hope that, as demand returns, we will see many members of our team returning to us.”
