Struggling low budget domestic carrier Jet Airways has once again resorted to cost-cutting measures by pruning its staff.
According to reports, 16 Jet Airways staff have been fired in the latest layoff by the company, PTI has reported.
These employees were working as ground staff in Jet Airways’ Kochi and Hyderabad offices.
“The airline continues to lay off people from various departments in small groups. It has already shut its city office in Hyderabad, which had 4-5 employees. Last week, the airline asked some of its employees working in the Kochi office to quit. Together, it has retrenched another 16 people from these two offices,” an unnamed source was quoted by PTI as saying.
Earlier, the airline had laid off 20 employees, including some senior-level executives from the in-flight services department.
