Budget airline Norwegian has axed its long-haul network, leading to the loss of 1,100 pilot and cabin crew jobs based at Gatwick Airport.
The carrier's board of directors said it will continue to operate with a "simplified business structure".
It comes following the "profound" impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the aviation industry, the board said.
A Gatwick spokeswoman said the demand for slots at the airport remained strong.
The airline will now focus on its European short-haul network, using smaller aircraft.
