The airline has begun layoffs to reduce cost and save money as the airline looks to adjust its operating rights.

The spokesman said in a statement earlier this week:

“We at Emirates Airlines do everything we can to retain the talented people who make up our workforce for as long as possible. However, given the significant impact that the epidemic has had on our business, we simply cannot conserve excess resources and allocate our workforce in line with our reduced operations. After reviewing all scenarios and options, we deeply regret that we must let some of our people go. "
