Emirates to slash 9000 employees: Report

Aviation major Emirates might slash 9000 jobs, a top official has said.

The company has 60,000 staff prior to the proposed layoff.

Emirates President Tim Clark told BBC the airline had already cut a tenth of its staff.

He said: "We will probably have to let go of a few more, probably up to 15%."

Tim said Emirates was "not as badly off as others".

But its current situation marks a steep turnaround in the fortunes of the airline, which he said before the pandemic was "heading for one of our best years ever".

The decision is being made by the airlines major at a time when the world is combating COVID-19 outbreak.
