Emirates to restore employees’ full salaries


Emirates airline will restore its employees full salaries starting from October.

This comes as the company continues to ease travel restrictions and resume flights to over 80 destinations that had been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Since March the airline has made thousands of layoffs as it struggled to recover from the economic fallout caused by the outbreak.

“Like other airlines and travel companies, COVID-19 has hit us hard, and as a responsible business, we simply must right-size our workforce in line with our reduced operational requirements,” an Emirates spokesperson told Reuters in July.
