Air Jamaica staff reductions.

AIR JAMAICA STAFF REDUCTIONS. Air Jamaica announced that 40 of the company's 220 pilot positions will be made redundant over the next two months as part of the company's corporate restructuring, reports Caribbean Net News (April 22, 2005). Dr. Vincent Lawrence, Executive Chairman of Air Jamaica, said the airline needs fewer pilots as it is now operating a smaller number of aircraft, has cut four routes (Manchester, Antigua, Houston and London to Havana), and has reduced the frequency of flights on other routes. In January, nearly 200 Air Jamaica staff including 100 flight attendants were made redundant as the company began implementing a restructuring program to cut costs.
