Swedavia to cut 125 members of staff in efficiency drive

LinkedIn +

Swedish airport operator Swedavia has announced its plans to lay-off 125 employees as a result of an ongoing change and efficiency program. The measures are aimed at ensuring Swedavia’s cost-effectiveness and long-term competitiveness.

Jonas Abrahamsson, president and CEO of Swedavia, said, “We are now creating conditions to remain competitive and in order to develop our operations in the long term. In an industry that has narrow margins, we also need to adapt to a changing world with decelerating passenger growth.”

The lay-offs include jobs in the group’s corporate units as well as at Swedavia’s airports, but mainly in Stockholm and Gothenburg.

“We will work to make it easier for the employees affected to get a new job quickly, in part through a partnership with TRR [a Swedish non-profit foundation that provides expertise to redundant workers],” added Abrahamsson.

Negotiations with Swedish trade unions will begin immediately, with the aim of implementing the measures by the end of June 2019. Swedavia currently has around 3,100 employees.
