Emirates says there will be redundancies at the company as it struggles to come to terms with the drastic reduction in air travel following the Coronavirus pandemic.

Emirates are the world’s biggest long-haul airline. And Emirates are one of the last airline companies to announce there will be redundancies.

The news was announced via a statement from the company last night.

Emirates statement in full

“During these difficult times, and although we have slowly started our return to the skies by keeping in line with the safety measures. The current pandemic has impacted many industries around the world and although we have endeavored to sustain the current family as is, we reviewed all possible scenarios in order to sustain our business operations, but have come to the conclusion that we unfortunately have to say goodbye to a few of the wonderful people that worked with us. We continuously are reassessing the situation and will have to adapt to this transitional period. We do not view this lightly, and the company is doing everything possible to protect jobs wherever we can. Where we are forced to take tough decisions we will treat people with fairness and respect.  We will work with impacted employees to ensure they are looked after and taken care of with necessary means.”

The airline employs more than 60,000 people but they haven’t confirmed how many will lose their jobs or where the redundancies will occur.

Emirates meanwhile has announced flights to nine destinations. And travellers will all get their own onboard hygiene kit when they check-in.
