Virgin Atlantic to cut Caribbean staff

Monday, June 16, 2014

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados—At least 14 Virgin Airline employees based in the Caribbean will soon lose their jobs. The airline said the job losses will be as a result of consolidation of its Caribbean operations into its North American head office. Virgin’s Caribbean office is based in Barbados.


“We anticipate 14 job roles to go from the region, with a further seven at risk. We are working closely with the team through the consultation period, and will look to retain people within Virgin Atlantic if possible. We will be offering support and training during this difficult time,” Virgin said in a media statement. Confirmation of exactly which workers will be laid off is expected to come in approximately six weeks and the actual departure date of affected employees will depend on their notice period.
