Malindo planning to shed more than 2,000 jobs

Malaysia based airline Malindo is planning to cut about 2,200 jobs to stay afloat as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to severely impact its business.

The hybrid full-service carrier will also reduce its fleet size to 11 planes, according to a report by The Malaysian Reserve.

Management have proposed to cut its workforce from 3,200 to about 1,000 by the end of November.

This summer Lion Air Group-owned Malindo offered some staff voluntary redundancy packages to reduce payroll costs, as well as voluntary unpaid leave for up to one year.

It will downsize to a leaner fleet of five Boeing 737 aircraft and six ATRs.

It currently has 24 aircraft.
