Coronavirus: India's biggest airline IndiGo to cut 10pc of staff

 

Indian airline IndiGo has become the latest carrier to reveal how hard it has been hit by the collapse in demand for flights due to Covid-19.

The country's largest airline said it will shed 10% of its staff as it grapples with a slump in revenues.

Last month, IndiGo said it would cut up to 40 billion rupees ($533m; £420m) in costs.

Airlines across the world have been hit hard by coronavirus-related travel restrictions, BBC reported.

In a letter to investors IndiGo's chief executive Ronojoy Dutta said: "It is impossible for our company to fly through this economic storm without making some sacrifices, in order to sustain our business operations."
