Ukraine International Airlines Company (UAI) will dismiss 900 employees due to the quarantine measures in the country which led to the closure of all international flights, as Interfax-Ukraine reported.
The air company has started the process of the downsizing of the workforce in accordance with the legislation. It will take at least two months.
“Currently, the management of the company assumes all possible measures for cost-saving and income generation from one-time flights. Our goal is to keep the company and the key staff, particularly, flight personnel. To our great regret, the significant decrease of the volumes of the activity of the air company led to the forcible downsizing of 900 highly professional UAI employees,” the message said.
Moreover, the Ukrainian company intends to reduce the long-haul fleet.
As we reported, the Infrastructure Ministry and Foreign Ministry hold talks about the renewal of the flights abroad.
