Qatar Airways to temporarily reduce 40% of staff at Hamad Airport

  • 8 months   ago

Qatar Airways has announced that it will temporarily reduce 40% of its staff at Hamad International Airport amid the Covid-19 pandemic.




Bloomberg quoted a spokesperson as saying that the reductions were in food and beverage, retail and ground staff.

This follows the reduced passenger numbers due to the travel restrictions.

The staff will either work remotely from home or take paid or even unpaid leave. They will not be present at the airport.

In other news, Qatar Airways also tweeted: “#QatarAirways has acquired 500K COVID-19 test kits to contribute to #Qatar relief efforts. @HIAQatar #HIAQatar.”

Aviation has been one of the most affected industries during the pandemic and many airlines and airports have laid off employees or closed part of their operations.
