Letters to all staff at GLA

Well they may not be posting any more.

Today (and this is not an April fool) aviance sent letters at GLA, to all staff informing them there will be redundancies in all departments.

They did bite off more than they could chew..
I for one will not shed a tear as thay have had it coming for years.

Old equipment,poor station management and staff that wander around and load us up when they feel like it.

The writtings on the wall for them I`m sorry to say.
In the last month we have taken at least 16 delays.

Time to bow out Chaps.

Never mind Menzies ,Swissport,Servisair/P will start summer staff soon it maybe an opportunity to see if the grass is greener.

aviance in total free fall.

Yes we beileive it was all planned before the BA contract by the Go- Ahead group, maybe time to change the name .Any Ideas ?

I was under the understanding that CWL was one of the stations actually making a profit for Aviance, I heared though that the Bosses are due down next week.

Also rumours on the grapevine is that they are in major dept in excess of 8m.

Equipment at CWL is not the best with lack of a/c steps etc. Possible of 5 w/b diversions today but would have only been able to take 1 due to lack of large a/c steps. There have also been redundancies in the Aviance training department too i believe.

Old Manager

I used to work at all aviance/MAS bases and I am not surprised by the
news that they are winding down stations.

what a record in the last year

The guys at GLA have held the operation together for years and this is the thanks they get.
(limpt on for 6 years,if it was a dog you would have put it down 6 years ago).

It looks like they only want BA.

Good luck to all the staff that are left.

GLA
Aviance is struggling to cope with their schedule at the minute due to lack of staff and lack of equipment.On a regular basis no more than 3 people are being sent out to jobs ranging from the now containerised BA 319's to the zoom 767's and they think they can manage with 22 full-time ramp ops gone. The management really aren't interested in the situation as the last 26yr old ramp manager has recently left to become a club rep in cyprus and we have DM's who aren't passed out operating the likes of hi-loaders, air-starts, pushbacks etc... yet seem to think they can audit the people who can do them. The place really is in a bad way.

Aviance DUB looking for a heap of redundancies AGAIN for the 2nd time in the last 2 years. If there not taken up, it will be last in first out and the offer is pathetic. 2 weeks for every year of service.

Excuse is " we havnt lost any contracts but we havnt gained any either"

Realism is .. there not trying to get any!!!

Aviance Man

Can anybody tell me what is happening to the Dispatch department at Man as I have heard that the company has lost quite a lot of contracts (AF, DL, VS...).

It looks like they are just concentring on the loading side as ( correct me if my wrong) they don't deal with pax service and dispatch with BA and BMI.

I worked with Aviance during 2 years before relocating to my home country France and I must admit that some great guys worked there which i had the pleasure of working on the ramp.

I had some great times there and I deeply hope that the guys i knew there came out of it ok if they lost there jobs.

8 Dispatchers to go at MAN. Only BA, SN and the odd Balkan Holidays charter left now. Since Christmas we've lost Virgin, VLM, GBairways, Air France and lastly Delta and won exactly - zero contracts !!

Aviance GLA

Its the same story at GLA, we've lost First Choice, Flyglobespan, declined Virgin and missed out on Aer Lingus, Thomas Cook and others to different handling agents.

We only handle BA, Zoom, Monarch and some seasonal airlines like Balkan, Air Europa, Futura, Eurocypria and Iberworld.

I think the company as a whole is totally downsizing and Im not sure the BA contract was really worth it, since we now have redundancies.
