Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau commits to look for more aid for airlines after Air Canada announces layoffs

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Saturday that he was committed to looking at possible ways to help airlines that were severely affected by the pandemic. Yet the Canadian prime minister laid out no new measures and remained mum on details.

“This pandemic has hit extremely hard on travel industries and on the airlines particularly. That’s why we’re going to keep working with airlines, including Air Canada, to see how we can help even more,” the prime minister stated in a briefing in Ottawa.

Trudeau’s announcement came one day after Canada’s largest airline revealed that it was preparing to slash its workforce by at least half.

Air Canada stated on Friday that it plans to reduce its staff by up to 60% on June 7, leaving 22,800 people jobless. The company is attempting at saving money and adapting to a lower level of traffic amid the coronavirus outbreak.
