Hawaiian Airlines has laid off 30 of its 545 non-union employees as part of a company restructuring.
Spokesman Keoni Wagner, who confirmed today that the layoffs occurred this week in managerial and administrative positions, said the eventual number of employees in the company’s total work force will be “a net positive” since Hawaiian will be adding 50 positions “over the coming weeks”
“There’s movement in all departments, and some employees are being promoted and others being reassigned,” Wagner said. “We are realigning the organization structure and management resources to better support the growth plan and the future needs of the business.”
Overall, Hawaiian has 4,020 employees.
