• SAS lay offs

    From Aviation HQ@2:292/854 to All on Tue Apr 28 14:03:13 2020
    Scandinavian airline SAS is cutting 5,000 jobs as a result of the corona crisis. Most of the redundancies are in Sweden, but the Norwegian and Danish workforce is also being cut.

    According to SAS, the company is deeply affected by the crisis. At the moment, the flow is very limited, and the company expects that it will take until at least 2022 before there is a recovery.

    Taking into account the notice period of the contracts, SAS wants to act proactively. Therefore, 1,900 jobs will disappear in Sweden, 1,300 in Norway and 1,700 in Denmark. Previously, competitor Norwegian was also forced to expel thousands of people.

    According to SAS, the number of layoffs can still be adjusted downwards, but then the corona crisis must stop in the short term.
