Citing the “uncertain” economic recovery, Avantair has laid off about 20 employees, mostly at its FBOs that it owns and operates but also marketing staff in Cleveland, “to reduce costs and better position the company for its strategic future.” The company emphasized that “none of the reductions affects pilots or the safety, maintenance and service aspects of our operations.” As part of the move, Avantair has relocated its marketing department at its Clearwater, Fla. headquarters.
