Emirates Airlines announced a decision to further reduce staff amid the economic crisis associated with the outbreak of the coronavirus COVID-19.
The carrier said in a statement that a “tough” decision had been made, which was affected by a change in the economic situation and the suspension of air traffic from March 25, 2020.
“Although we tried to keep our“ family ”in its current composition, we considered all possible scenarios for supporting our business activity, and as a result, we came to the conclusion that we should say goodbye to some wonderful people working with us,” the Emirates statement said.
About how the percentage of staff will be dismissed, not reported, but it is clarified that the company is doing everything possible to protect its staff and adapt to changes. Emirates also promises to take care of staff “fairly and respectfully” and to work closely with everyone affected by the cuts.
It is worth noting that since May 21, 2020, the airline launched flights to nine destinations in Europe, the USA, and Australia, and also opened booking tickets for several destinations in the countries of the Arab world for flights from July 1, 2020.
