easyJet to possibly lay off 275 employees at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, faces IT issues

easyJet is being forced to reduce its operations at Berlin Brandenburg Airport this coming winter due to slow recovery at the airport.

The number of aircraft based at BER will be reduced to 11. Seven aircraft will be redeployed throughout the system.

The airline has stated it will try to reduce the amount of staff reductions but 275 staff positions could be in jeopardy.

Meanwhile the airport expects a busy summer season.

Currently easyJet is having problems with IT issues at other airports. The airline issued an apology:
