Qantas to axe 6,000 jobs

Qantas has announced it is to cut 6,000 jobs.

The figure equates to one-fifth of its workforce prior to the Covid-19 crisis. In March, it furloughed more than 80% of its staff.

Chief executive Alan Joyce said the airline, and its budget subsidiary Jetstar, would continue to extend a furlough for about 15,000 workers 'as we wait for the recovery we know is coming'.

He said: "Many of the 6,000 job losses we have announced today are people we have spent decades with here - people we have known for a long time."
