Jobs are set to be cut at London City Airport as part of an airline’s proposed restructure.

CityJet’s executive chairman Pat Byrne said that airline “will be reducing the size of our London City crew base” and that it would be “entering into a consultation process with the staff affected”.

He added: “We will be able to offer some opportunities for employment elsewhere within CityJet but regrettably we expect that there will be redundancies among some of our workforce in London.”

The announcement comes as the airline plans to increase the frequency of its London City to Dublin route, although the London City to Paris Orly and Nantes services will end next month.

Mr Byrne said the airline will continue to review its scheduled services and added: “CityJet remains fully committed to London City Airport.”
