Travel technology specialist Anite to trim workforce

Technology giant Anite, which is a major player in travel in the UK, is believed to be cutting back with the loss of at least 20 jobs at its Slough office.

Travolution understands the travel division, which specialises in tour operating reservations technology, has already let a number of people go, with further redundancies on the cards.

Neither managing director Simon Tyrrell or finance director Paresh Sejpar were available for comment. Bosses are believed to be preparing an official announcement next week.

Other areas of the Anite business are also believed to be affected by the cuts.

A half-year trading statement issued earlier this month from the company, which is quoted on the London Stock Exchange, showed revenues in the travel division up 12% year-on-year.

The statement also said divisional operating profits, “including a very small bad debt” from the collapsed XL Leisure, were similar to the same period last year.

The update went on to say that the “divisional order book has been reduced by some £4 million” because of XL Leisure as well as “changes in MyTravel work”.

Earlier this year MyTravel ended part of its contract with Anite.
