The number of managers at the national road company CNAIR will be reduced as well, he added.

Tarom’s Board of Directors has endorsed the downsized organizational chart for several departments, especially the commercial, procurement and economic departments, Cuc announced.

He said that the 300 leaving Tarom are only the beginning. The next step is evaluating how much of the core, technical staff is actually needed, he explained.

“Of the approximately 470 technical staff, some of them do not work to their full potential,” minister Cuc said.
