Jet Airways is cutting down its workforce and operations in order to overcome its worst financial crisis, reported The Economic Times.
Nearly 15 people serving at manager or general manager level in various departments have been asked to leave the firm this month, the report said citing a person familiar with the development.
In addition to a reduction in the workforce, the report said that the carrier has also cut down its flight services. The report said that the carrier has grounded eight of its planes at the Chennai and Mumbai airports including two Airbus A330, a Boeing 777, two Boeing 737s and three ATR turboprops.
