May 16, 2020 15:27 IST

Canada’s largest airline Air Canada said it plans to lay off at least 20,000 employees because of the coronavirus pandemic. Air Canada said the cuts affect more than half of the company’s 38,000 employees. The airline said the pandemic has forced it to reduce scheduled flights by 95% and it doesn’t expect normal traffic to return anytime soon.
