Air Arabia confirms additional job losses among revenues collapse

Posted 3 June 2020 · Add Comment

Air Arabia has confirmed a further round of job losses as it reported a first-quarter drop in revenues of 45%.

The Sharjah-based airline, which has about 2,000 employees, laid off 57 employees in May, sources within the airline suggest that as many as 10% of the total staff could go in this round. The airline is also expected to announce the grounding of up to 17 of its A320 fleet.
A spokesman said the job losses were a "last alternative" after the airline took a series of steps in past months to protect jobs.
The airline is due to begin a joint venture LCC with Etihad and operate from Abu Dhabi as soon as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
