Chief Executive Stewart Wingate has revealed plans to cut 600 more employees of Gatwick Airport, roughly a quarter of the workforce, due to the devastating impact of coronavirus.
Now the airport is running only at 20% of its usual capacity for August, with only the North Terminal open.
About 75% of staff are currently on the government’s furlough scheme, that ends in October.
Employees will be formally consulted on the restructuring plans before any jobs are lost.
Gatwick’s announcement follows the news that British Airways will make hundreds of job cuts at the airport in West Sussex.
