SkyBahamas sends home 11 more



NASSAU – Just days after a group of SkyBahamas pilots was furloughed for six months, the airline announced yesterday

that it would cut more staff from its workforce to stem financial losses.

In an interview at his Blake Road office yesterday, SkyBahamas CEO and president Randy Butler said the layoffs were

the result of months of falling demand, increased competition and the effects of union action.

Butler indicated that ten non-technical employees in customer services and one technical employee had been laid off.

He said the layoff list could have been longer, but several other employees agreed “to go on days”, instead of working

full weeks.

No pilots were included in this latest round of layoffs.

In a letter issued to the pilots who were furloughed on Friday, SkyBahamas pointed to serious financial challenges.
