Delta to Cut 13,000 Jobs

Delta Air Lines of U.S. announced Wednesday that it will cut up to 13,000 jobs about 15% of its total workforce.

The Atlanta-based carrier also said it was cutting its capacity 15% because of the decline in air travel after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

Other U.S. airlines have announced about 80,000 job cuts since the attacks with AMR, parent of American Airlines, and UAL, parent of United Airlines, each cutting 20,000 jobs. Northwest, Continental and US Airways also previously announced job cuts.

Southwest Airlines remains the only major airline that has not announced job reductions.

Delta said a significant number of its job cuts will be through voluntary programs. Company spokeswoman Cindi Kurczewski has said some workers will be furloughed.

Workers who are furloughed are automatically placed on recall lists, but their time off could be lengthy.

Delta, the largest employer in metro Atlanta with 32,000 workers, has large workforces at its other hubs Cincinnati, Dallas-Fort Worth and Salt Lake City. The airline also has extensive operations in New York, Los Angeles and Orlando, Fla.
