Emirates: No Big Decisions Have Been Made Regarding Mass Redundancies


Emirates speaks out against international media which claim big job cuts are coming.

On Sunday evening, Bloomberg reported that Emirates was considering cutting 30,000 jobs as a move to cut costs in line with a downward trend in travel in the coming years.

Emirates immediately spoke out, stating any decision would be communicated in an appropriate fashion adding that the airline is doing a comprehensive review of all its departments, even as it prepares to gradually resume service.

An Emirates spokesperson stated that no announcement has been made regarding mass redundancies

Like any responsible business, the airline is looking at cost-cutting measures in all departments

Saving cash, safeguarding the business, and preserving as much of the skilled workforce as possible will remain its top priorities

Emirates Adds Passenger Flights To More Destinations Starting From May 21

Emirates announced it will resume passenger flights to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne, and offer connections in Dubai for customers between UK and Australia.

Great news for people who need to travel urgently, flights to nine destinations will resume on May 21.
