(MENAFN - AFP) International Airlines Group on Tuesday announced plans to cut 400 cabin crew jobs at its British Airways division.

"We are offering voluntary redundancy to some members of our senior cabin crew to help address an imbalance in our crew numbers," an IAG spokesman said, adding that 400 jobs would be affected.

"Based on the feedback from our senior cabin crew in the past few months, we believe that there will be good demand for this opportunity. We have now begun a 90 day consultation with Unite about the issues."

The spokesman stressed that it was a purely voluntary scheme and there were no plans to make any compulsory redundancies. In total, BA has around 14,000 cabin crew.

The news comes almost one month after BA's loss-making sister group, Iberia, revealed it was seeking to axe 4,500 jobs to save it from collapse.

British Airways and Spanish carrier Iberia merged in January 2011 in a tie-up aimed at slashing one another's costs, as a sharp economic downturn and rise of low-cost competitors sparked steep losses for traditional carriers.
