airbus 01Airbus said Tuesday it needs to cut 15,000 jobs — or 17% of its commercial jet workforce — within the next year in response to the COVID-19 crisis that has devastated the airline business.
 

The company said after an “in-depth analysis of customer demand,” it does not expect air traffic to recover to pre-pandemic levels before 2023, and potentially as late as 2025.

Because commercial jet revenue is now 40% below pre-pandemic levels, the job cuts would be much worse without support Airbus is receiving from European governments.


Aside from the prospective 15,000 job cuts, many Airbus employees are now working part-time, with their respective governments paying them unemployment benefits for the hours not worked, through September and in some cases beyond.
 

The job losses will be distributed so about 5,100 will be cut in Germany, 5,000 in France, 1,700 in the U.K., 900 in Spain and 1,300 elsewhere, mainly in China, the United States and Canada.

These new cuts because of the pandemic come on top of previously announced unrelated losses of 2,600 jobs in the Defense and Space division and another 900 jobs from the restructuring of an Airbus subsidiary in Germany that produces commercial jet parts.
 

空客宣布史上最大规模裁员计划


空客公司宣布史上最大规模裁员计划在全球范围内裁减1.5万个工作岗位


空中客车公司6月30日宣布,将于2021年夏季之前在全球范围内裁减1.5万个工作岗位。这是空客公司历史上最大规模的裁员计划。


空中客车公司由德国、法国、英国和西班牙共同成立。该公司30日举行了四国代表参加的特别会议,并宣布了裁员计划。空客公司在就此发表的新闻公报中表示,受新冠肺炎疫情影响,近几个月来全球商业飞行数量减少约40%,商用航空业也受到波及。鉴于世界航空活动至少要到2023年,甚至可能到2025年才能恢复新冠肺炎疫情暴发前水平,因此,空客公司必须采取行动加以应对。
 

空客公司表示,裁员将从今年秋季持续到2021年夏季。裁员规模约占公司员工总数的11%。据悉,德国将裁员5100人,法国裁员5000人,英国裁员1700人,西班牙裁员900人,世界其他国家和地区共裁减1300人。
