Breaking News ! EasyJet is set to close its hubs at Stansted, Southend and Newcastle as part of a huge restructuring following the global coronavirus pandemic. At the same time EasyJet has moved to slash up to 5,000 jobs at the company - a move that was first flagged in May. Johan Lundgren, EasyJet chief executive, said: “These are very difficult proposals to put forward in what is an unprecedented and difficult time for the airline and the industry as a whole. "We are focused on doing what is right for the company and its long term health and success so we can protect jobs going forward. "Unfortunately the lower demand environment means we need fewer aircraft and have less opportunity for work for our people - we are committed to working constructively with our employee representatives across the network with the aim of minimising job losses as far as possible. "These proposals are no reflection on our people at Stansted, Southend and Newcastle, who have all worked tirelessly and have been fully committed to providing great service for our customers.” EasyJet said back in May that it would need to reduce staff numbers by up to 30% as well as review its bases as a result of the pandemic.

. "We are fully committed to work closely with our employee representatives during these consultations with the aim of minimising job losses as far as possible."

It confirmed that as part of the job cuts, 727 pilots are at risk of redundancy. Brian Strutton, BALPA general secretary, said: “We know that aviation is in the midst of the COVID crisis and we had been expecting EasyJet to make an announcement of temporary measures to help the airline through to recovery. “But this seems an excessive over-reaction and EasyJet won’t find a supply of pilots waiting to come back when the recovery takes place over the next two years. We are meeting EasyJet today and we will be fighting to save every single job."
