After Etihad, Dubai’s Emirates also reviews job cuts: Report


DUBAI: Dubai-based Emirates airline is reviewing to cut workforce in a tough environment.

According to a Reuters report, overcapacity and stronger dollar are impacting Emirates and other Gulf carriers.

Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways also earlier announced job cuts amidst tough competition and slowing aviation market. The regional geo-political crises, lower oil prices and slowing economies are forcing the Gulf carriers to lower their costs due to declining turnover.

“Dubai-based Emirates has offered redundancies to staff working in accounting, finance, IT and other departments in its head-office, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. The airline did not immediately respond to requests for comment,” Reuters said in a statement on Monday.

Emirates and Etihad employ over 103,000 and 26,000 staff, respectively, according to their websites, Reuters said.
