in the National.


Etihad Airways is cutting jobs as the aviation sector responds to a global economic slowdown. The Abu Dhabi-based airline did not say how may jobs would be lost but that the restructuring would result in a measured reduction of headcount in some parts of the business.
"Etihad Airways is operating in an increasingly competitive landscape, against a backdrop of weakened global economic conditions," the airline said in a statement.

"To ensure we remain agile and competitive in this environment, we constantly explore and pursue new ways of driving productivity and improving efficiency so that we can continue to deliver on our mandate and vision."
Etihad said it would conduct an organisational review in a "fair, structured and transparent way."

Dubai: Etihad Airways is cutting down its workforce as part of a restructuring scheme amid the current economic conditions, a spokesperson confirmed with Gulf News on Monday.
The Abu Dhabi-based airline would not confirm how many people will be laid off, but it said that the move involves an ”ongoing process of organisational reviews and restructuring in different parts of the business.”
“The restructuring will result in a measured reduction of headcount in some parts of the business,” the airline said in a statement sent to Gulf News.
As to which specific departments are being targeted, the spokesperson would not provide further details either, but said that the "majority of people affected are through natural attrition and that their jobs will not be filled."The carrier assured, however, that it will observe fairness and transparency in carrying out the restructuring process, as it continues to invest in future growth at the same time.
