 UPDATE TO THIS STORY
AUGUST 4TH, 2020
In August, Alaska Airlines said it would be permanently reducing around 26% of its Alaska workforce. More than 300 people could be laid off – including 77 ramp employees, 66 customer service agents, 18 maintenance technicians and 135 flight attendants. The airlines said they'd be keeping their pilots.

Overall, Alaska Airlines projects a total of up to 4,200 layoffs or "furloughs" nationwide.

ORIGINAL JUNE 11TH STORY
Alaska Airlines is cutting 3,000 jobs out of the 23,000 held by its current staff due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company announced on Thursday, June 11th.

The company didn't say where the cuts would be. There are over 1,800 employees in Alaska. But Tim Thompson, an airlines spokesman, said the cuts wouldn't hurt travel in state. "We'll continue to serve the 20 communities in the state of Alaska," he said.
