AirAsia Bhd may lay off more that 300 employees to pare down its operations amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, reported Astro Awani.
The lay offs, said to have been announced by chief executive officer Riad Asmat during an internal briefing session yesterday, are expected to involve 111 cabin crew members, 172 pilots and 50 engineers.
"Everyone involved in the job cuts will be notified by email within 24 hours. AirAsia also promises compensation to all involved," the report said.
Riad was quoted as saying that as there are no other options to ensure that the low-cost carrier continues to operate like before, the organisation's restructuring is a viable alternative at present due to the difficult global economic situation.
