Delta Air Lines Inc, which took over rival Northwest Airlines last year, said it expects about 2,000 staff to opt for an early retirement program as it aims to trim capacity as much as 8 percent this year.

In December, Delta, which has about 75,000 staff worldwide, said it would offer employees severance packages, but it didn’t say how many jobs it aimed to cut.

“We are expecting a number of around 2,000 because the capacity reduction is going to be around 6 to 8 percent,” Delta CEO Richard Anderson told reporters on the sidelines of a media briefing in Tokyo.
