400 jobs to go at Heathrow

British Airways has confirmed that 400 cabin crew based at Heathrow will lose jobs. The airline say they will be staff in senior roles. The jobs are expected to go in the Spring of next year.

The news follows a decision by BA parent company IAG (International Airlines Group) to cut 4,500 jobs at loss making Iberia.

We are offering voluntary redundancy to some members of our senior cabin crew to help address an imbalance in our crew numbers. Based on the feedback from our senior cabin crew in the past few months, we believe that there will be good demand for this opportunity. We have now begun a 90 day consultation with Unite about the issues.
