Emirates Staff Face Job Cuts

Emirates staff in the UK have reportedly been warned that they could face redundancy

Hundreds of Emirates UK staff have reportedly been told that they could face redundancy due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects across the travel sector.

According to The Telegraph, almost 600 UK-based roles could be affected.

The Telegraph claim to have seen an internal memo which warns staff that there is a need for the carrier to “consider reducing the size of its UK workforce”.

Reasons reportedly cited by Emirates include quarantine, border controls and travel restrictions, which it says have dampened flight demand.
