Airline easyJet has confirmed it will close its base in Newcastle.
In total 670 cabin crew and pilots operate out of the three bases.
The airline says following the consultation with cabin crew unions, 93% of the job loses will be voluntary redundancies.
It hopes to reassign other staff in order to keep compulsory redundancies at a minimum. A consultation with pilots is continuing.
Flights will continue in and out of Stansted and Newcastle but will stop to and from Southend from the beginning of September.Copyright: Getty Images
