Flybe BA Connect takeover threatens 350 jobs


Nearly 350 British Airways' ground-handling jobs at Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports are under threat as a result of the proposed takeover of BA Connect by Flybe, the Scotsman newspaper reports.

Aberdeen's BA flights will be cut by 25% as a result of the takeover, 50% at Edinburgh and 30% at Glasgow. The potential cuts affect 56 Aberdeen staff, 136 Edinburgh and 139 Glasgow, said the spokesman. Ground staff in Manchester Airport will also be affected.

Staff meetings involving those potentially affected were held at the end of last week. Officials were unable to give any more certainty to workers over their future, other than to say a review is underway and a final decision will be made by the end of the year.

A spokesman for BA in Scotland confirmed that, 'as a result of the potential loss of flights, the proposed sale would result in a significant impact' on the number of ground-handling staff.
