Layoffs at Bangor International Airport and More Coming 


15 part-time employees have been laid off at Bangor International Airport and more layoffs are coming.

BIA Director Tony Caruso says he met with the affected employees Thursday and about half were offered to stay with the airport on an on-call basis. He says the primary reason for the cuts is the decline in military charter flights.

Caruso says they continue to evaluate the airport’s financial situation and more layoffs are expected to be announced next week. He says they will include full-time, part-time, union and non-union employees.

Caruso says the airport is looking for ways to strengthen other revenue streams so they aren’t so reliant on military flights.
