COMAIR PLANS TO TRIM FLEET, CUT JOBS…

Posted on 06 September 2010

Comair, a regional airline owned by Delta Air Lines, will shrink its fleet by more than half and reduce staff over the next two years to cut costs. President John Bendoraitis told employees in a memo Wednesday that Comair will get rid of most of its aging, less-efficient 50-seat jets and keep its bigger 65-seat and 76-seat jets. The airline plans to shrink its fleet of 97 planes to 44 by the end of 2012. Comair’s current cost structure remains about 20% higher than its peers on a cost-per-hour basis, he said.
