Aer Lingus has announced it is permanently closing its cabin crew base at Shannon Airport.
81 cabin crew are based there, and they will be given the option of taking enhanced severance packages or transferring to Dublin where feasible.
45 ground staff in the Shannon base will continue to be laid-off.
Meanwhile, the airline's base at Cork airport will close temporarily between September and late November.
There are around 60 ground staff and 138 cabin crew in the Cork base who will be laid-off during this time.
Staff were informed of the decision today.
The moves come after Aer Lingus announced it lost €103 million in the first three months of this year, and €361 million last year.
Aer Lingus staff were told immediate actions and structural changes are required to make the airline more cost-efficient.
Aer Lingus confirmed to staff that the airline will emerge smaller from the pandemic and there will be a requirement for redundancies.
