Spanish carrier Iberia to cut up to 955 more jobs

MADRID, Aug 17 (Reuters) - Spanish airline Iberia, part of International Consolidated Airlines Group, aims to cut up to 955 jobs as part of a fresh round of redundancies outlined to unions, a spokeswoman for the company said on Thursday.

The layoffs would involve voluntary redundancies and early retirement plans, she said, after the firm flagged plans for more job cuts in April.

Iberia, which is part of IAG alongside British Airways, Vueling and Aer Lingus, had 16,282 employees at the end of 2016. The Spanish carrier has been through two rounds of redundancies in recent years, cutting about 4,500 workers.
