Norwalk’s Southern Air to cut 120 jobs

Southern Air Inc. filed a mass-layoff notice with the state this week saying 120 workers will lose their jobs in March.

The cargo airline has struggled over the last few years and is trying to emerge from chapter 11 bankruptcy. A plan of reorganization was scheduled for Feb. 14 of this year.

In November, the airline suffered a $7.2 million net loss from operations according to documents filed with the court.

Southern provides cargo services for commercial operations, government and the military.
