The release said the impacted employees are being informed directly, with a forty-five day notice period thereafter.

CAL said during the past five weeks extensive discussions were held with employees and employee representatives in the various locations that Caribbean Airlines operates.

It said the process was constructive. Caribbean Airlines said it has made significant progress on the

previously announced consultation process for its proposed restructuring, undertaken as a result of the impact of the COVID-19pandemic on its commercial activities.

CAL said it has adjusted its planned strategy, fleet size and route network to reflect the decreased size of its future market, specifically,
reduced passenger numbers, which is estimated to remain below 2019 levels for the next two to three years.
