Aer Lingus to axe 670 jobs

Aer Lingus is to lay off 670 staff as it aims to save about €97m in a radical restructuring plan, the airline confirmed today.

Cabin crew who rejected a cost-saving proposal face 230 compulsory redundancies while four unions of pilots, maintenance, craft and administration staff will see 440 voluntary job cuts.

The airline announced an operating loss of €81m for last year.
