LIAT responds to speculation over staff cuts

LIATST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The management of regional airline LIAT has responded to recent media reports about proposed job cuts at the company.

LIAT’s head of corporate communications Desmond Brown said: “Any staff cuts that may be required in order to reflect the size of LIAT's business in the future will only be made in consultation with staff and their representatives. This process has yet to commence and therefore any speculation about the number of cuts remains just that -- speculation.”

In October, LIAT said it was about to embark on its annual budget planning exercise and to put in place its operational plans for 2015.

As a result of the airline's fleet transition programme LIAT will be a smaller airline in 2015 than in 2014, operating a fleet of nine aircraft as opposed to 11 in 2014.
