Irish airline Aer Lingus is to close its cabin crew base at one of the country's largest airports and impose cutbacks and layoffs across the company as part of a COVID-19 restructuring plan, it said on Tuesday. In a statement, Aer Lingus said it had "confirmed to staff that the airline will emerge smaller from the pandemic, and there will be a requirement for redundancies." The Irish carrier, which like British Airways and Iberia is owned by International Airlines Group, is to close its base at Shannon Airport, one of its four main domestic hubs.
