In the framework of the merger of three regional airline companies which belong to the group Air France, including Brit'Air, into a new company called 'Hop!',  66 positions will be cut by Brit’Air out of a total workforce of 294 employees. Brit’Air has negotiated a voluntary departure plan to avoid forced dismissals. The plan is open until the 31 March. The voluntary departures will happen from 11 April to 31 December. The group Air France has announced several restructuring over the last several years: the first in 2010 led to 5,000 job cuts, the second announced in June 2012 which cut about 5,122 employees, the third downsized its workforce by 1,826  employees in 2014 and in 2015 the company announced two reorganisations, one in April 2015 which cut 800 positions and a second in October 2015 which cut 1,000 positions.
