Financial crisis forces UAE Airline to take serious action

Dubai, 6th November: Dubai-based Emirates Airline has confirmed a selection of its pilots has been offered unpaid leave for a period of 12 months.

According to a Baaghi TV report, Emirates Airlines, based in Dubai, has confirmed that several of its pilots have been sent on unpaid leave for a period of 12 months.

The cuts from the pilots’ careers are a recent step as the effects of the global coronavirus pandemic are causing a crisis in the entire aviation industry.

An Emirates spokesperson told Arabian Business: “We continue to do all we can to protect our talent pool for post-pandemic business recovery, but we also need to consider the impact of the current situation on our operations and cost base. Across the Group, we are implementing various offers including unpaid leave and more flexible working time models.”

“We can confirm that we’ve offered some of our pilot’s unpaid leave for 12 months, with the possibility of an early recall back to duty depending on how quickly demand rebounds and our operational requirements. During unpaid leave, the company will continue to provide accommodation, medical cover and other allowances.”

Throughout the group, we are pursuing numerous offers, including unpaid vacations, as well as trying to create flexibility and ease in working opportunities.
