Engineering a new Qantas

Qantas' announcement of 500 job cuts today is only part of an ongoing story as it rebases its costs. Its new aircraft won't need as much maintenance and the resources sector may offer opportunities for the axed engineers.

Qantas’ confirmation that it will shed 500 engineering jobs is only a part of a continuing story as the group attempts to rebase its costs to bring them into line with its ever-evolving circumstances.

The job losses within its heavy maintenance facilities were flagged when Qantas announced its first-half results in February, and it also announced another 500 job cuts to its engineering, planning, catering and cabin crew functions.
