British Airways May Cut 12,000 Jobs

MIAMI– British Airways (BA) has today announced it will cut 12,000 jobs in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The International Airlines Group (IAG), who owns British Airways stated that it needed to implement “a restructuring and redundancy program” until the demand for air travel is similar to that of next year.

This accounts for around 28.5% of the 42,000 strong people that work for the airline.

IAG mentioned in a statement that this process is subject to consultation.

“The proposals remain subject to consultation, but it is likely that they will affect most of British Airways’ employees and may result in the redundancy of up to 12,000 of them.”
