Delta Air Lines is cutting some corporate jobs in an effort to cut costs as the industry grapples with higher expenses such as for fuel and labor.
“While we’re not yet back to full capacity, now is the time to make adjustments to programs, budgets and organizational structures across Delta to meet our stated goals — one part of this effort includes adjustments to corporate staffing in support of these changes,” Delta said in a statement to CNBC. “These decisions are never made lightly but always with care and respect for our impacted team members and the Delta family.”
Delta didn’t specify how many jobs it is cutting and said they do not affect frontline workers like pilots or flight attendants.
