MYTRAVEL
has confirmed hundreds of shop staff will be axed as part of its ongoing
redundancy programme.

The
redundancies will mainly be “meeters and greeters” and administration
staff but some front-line travel agents at Going Places and Travelworld will
also go.

These
are part of up to 700 redundancies already announced by the company, which also
revealed that up to 10 shops will close.

Meanwhile, there is a further redundancy programme for
up to 1,300 jobs worldwide. The MyTravel group expects another 500 positions to
be lost through natural wastage in the next 18 months.
