FLS to cut 270 aircraft maintenance jobs at Stanstead

More
than 270 jobs are to be cut at UK aircraft maintenance firm FLS Aerospace at
Stansted airport.

FLS
broke the news to unions today, and officials now fear further cutbacks at its
site at Manchester airport.

The
Transport and General Workers Union said it would fight the job cuts, which it
said were "baffling" given plans to expand traffic at Stansted.

The
Danish-owned group maintains and repairs aircraft for a number of major
carriers, including Ryanair and Easyjet.
