Planes. Ana could lay off 3,500 employees
Japanese carrier is reviewing the business plan
Rising or waning sun? The doubt is legitimate after learning of the latest employment measure of the Japanese air carrier All Nippon Airways, which intends to lay off 3,500 employees within the next two years. Ana is looking at the 2020-2022 period with pessimism, given that the crisis triggered by covid-19 is making itself felt like never before and urgent and unfortunately painful measures are needed. Workforce of Japanese airline is made up of 46 thousand people and already in the last months of this year some of them will have to deal with a "welcome". The idea is to propose early retirement and temporary transfers to other divisions of the company.
There is no mention of recruitment at all, on the contrary, in the course of 2021 they will be reduced by about twenty percentage points compared to what was initially expected. Business plan is by no means encouraging. First of all, the Asian carrier should reduce operating costs by 100 billion yen (about 800 million euros to be precise), without forgetting the new salaries for 15,000 workers; according to what has been reported by local media in the last few hours, scissors to pay should be equal to 30%. Finally, All Nippon Airways would be considering revising the negotiation of 30 large aircraft due to the fewer international routes (see AVIONEWS).
