Aer Lingus has cut a number of jobs due to what the airline described as the “decimation in demand for travel” during the coronavirus pandemic.
With almost all business and leisure travel suspended, and global commerce greatly impacted by the spread of coronavirus, the IAG-owned carrier confirmed that it had “deferred” a number of “planned appointments”.
