Etihad Airways cuts jobs over COVID-19 concerns

Etihad Airways says it’s had to cut jobs in some areas of business due to the challenges posed by COVID-19.

A spokesperson for the UAE’s national carrier said: "The coronavirus pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to businesses around the world, and Etihad is no exception. It is clear the demand for travel in the near future will be significantly reduced and as a result we must make difficult decisions to ensure Etihad will weather this storm. 
 
"We are incredibly proud of our world-class workforce, however, we have had to make redundancies across several areas of our business to reflect current market conditions."
 
The company didn’t give any figures on the redundancies, or specify the departments.
