Emirates lays off 'dozens' of employees


Emirates is laying off dozens of employees as the Dubai carrier continues to "streamline" after years of rapid growth, reports Bloomberg.
The world's biggest long-haul airline is scaling back senior cabin crew as well as the support department workforce including administration and IT, said the report.
The cuts at Emirates, which froze hiring last summer and hasn't taken on new crew in months, began in the last few weeks and affect middle and upper-level managers, they said.
Emirates denied there was a company-wide plan to reduce headcount and that "there is no change in staff turnover rates in the past weeks".
The carrier continues to hire for "critical roles", a spokeswoman said, noting that "recruitment has slowed down as we streamline our operations, introduce new technologies, and find ways to better deploy existing resources internally."
Gulf airlines have had to adapt to tougher business conditions after years of expansion, with challenges ranging from the US ban on travellers from predominantly Muslim countries to reduced spending power in the region due to low oil prices.
Abu-Dhabi's Etihad Airways has also cut jobs amid restructuring. To increase revenue, Emirates has begun charging for seat selection, added fees for its airport lounges and may introduce premium-economy seats to boost sales amid waning growth in business class.
