LONDON (Reuters) - No easyJet <EZJ.L> pilots will be given compulsory redundancy after agreeing a deal with the airline, the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) said on Friday.

In June 727 pilots were at risk of redundancy, but BALPA said that now 60 would leave voluntarily and 1,500 had opted for part-time work.

"EasyJet pilots and management have achieved a breakthrough in negotiations meaning that no pilots will be made compulsorily redundant," BALPA said in a statement.
