Up to 3,900 jobs might be lost in the near future as Ireland’s two main airlines, Ryanair and Aer Lingus, are reportedly considering redundancies to offset the devastating financial impact of Covid-19.
Ryanair announced that it’s likely to shed 3,000 jobs and ask remaining staff to take unpaid leave and pay cuts of up to 20%. The airline’s boss, Michael O’Leary, will take a 50% pay cut himself, unlike Irish Government Ministers, who will not.
Aer Lingus has advised that 900 jobs might go as the airline struggles with negligible demand and little prospect of improvement in the short term.
