Air Canada to cut 2,000 jobs



Air Canada has announced it is cutting 2,000 jobs - eight per cent of its
workforce - by the end of this year. Canada's flagship airline blamed
the sharp cut in capacity on rising fuel costs. The carrier has also
cut some of its routes. This report from Lee Carter:

The announcement from Canada's largest airline did not come entirely as a surprise. Carriers in the United States, including American, United and Delta, have all announced plans to reduce capacity and eliminate jobs.

The cost of jet fuel has more than doubled in the last year and quadrupled since 2004. Air Canada says every time oil increases by $1 a barrel, it costs the airline an additional $26 million a year.
Fuel is its largest expense, representing more than 30 per cent of its total operational spending. The airline has not ruled out further cuts to its capacity if oil prices remain at current levels.


Air Canada says it will begin a round of meetings with its unions next week to work out how the 2,000 jobs will be eliminated. The airline says it is hopeful some of them can be re-allocated. Among routes being
cut are Toronto to Rome in the low traffic season and the complete elimination of Air Canada's non-stop service from Vancouver to Osaka.
