LONDON – KLM (KL) is compelled to start the year by further downsizing its organization. The airline has already taken an array of measures to cope with the crisis sparked by the coronavirus pandemic.
Regrettably, this resulted, among other things, in the loss of 5,000 jobs in 2020. According to the airline, this number was based on the premise that air traffic would begin to recover in 2021.
Now, KL has repeatedly warned that recovery might be delayed, which means a downgrading of the scenario and consequently the loss of more jobs at the company.
