UNITED AIRLINES will eliminate 16,370 jobs next month to shrink operations in response to a decline in flights because of Covid pandemic, reports London's Air Cargo News.

The job losses will begin October 1, with about 7,400 United employees have chosen to leave the company voluntarily, while another 20,000 are on temporary leave programmes.



United's reductions add to the 19,000 job cuts planned by American Airlines. Both carriers said government financial aid to the industry is the only thing that can stop more layoffs.



Last month, United notified 36,000 of its 92,000 employees that their positions were at risk once the US payroll support programme ended.



Once placed on furlough, workers may be called back when demand improves. Chicago-based United doesn't believe travel or demand will return to normal until a vaccine is developed.



Cuts include 6,920 flight attendants, 1,400 management employees, and 2,850 pilots.
