British Airways to cut over 10.000 jobs


British Airways will cut 10,700 jobs. More than 6,000 employees have opted to make use of the voluntary severance scheme, resulting in some 4,000 forced redundancies, according to Unite the Union. The employees are now being informed about this.

British Airways had previously announced that it would cut up to 12,000 of its 42,000 jobs due to the corona crisis. For the pilots, the number of dismissals could be limited to 270, because the pilot association BALPA has agreed to a temporary salary reduction of 20 percent.

Like other airlines, British Airways has been hit hard by the corona crisis. The company, which does not receive special state aid, is currently operating at 20 percent of the capacity before the crisis. It was recently decided to dispose of the entire 747-400 fleet, which was the largest in the world.
