Etihad cuts jobs amid slowdown

Etihad Airways is cutting jobs as the aviation sector responds to a global economic slowdown. The Abu Dhabi-based airline did not say how may jobs would be lost but that the restructuring would result in a measured reduction of headcount in some parts of the business.

“Etihad Airways is operating in an increasingly competitive landscape, against a backdrop of weakened global economic conditions,” the airline said in a statement.

“To ensure we remain agile and competitive in this environment, we constantly explore and pursue new ways of driving productivity and improving efficiency so that we can continue to deliver on our mandate and vision.”

Etihad said it would conduct an organisational review in a “fair, structured and transparent way.”
