GE plans to sell its corporate jets

New York: General Electric plans to sell its corporate jets in a cost-cutting move amid sluggish activity in key industrial divisions, a spokesperson said. “As we have said, we are executing on a plan to take out $2 billion in cost by the end of 2018,” the GE spokesperson said.
“As part of that effort, starting today, we are reducing the Corporate Air Transport services and will use charter companies as needed.” GE owns several jets and helicopters that have been used by executives for global travel, both for efficiency and security.
GE has been under pressure on Wall Street as weak activity in its oil and gas and power divisions has pressured its earnings outlook. — AFP
