The aviation industry has suffered more than others due to the prolonged coronavirus lockdown restrictions which have been in force since the deadly pandemic swept across the globe. The Airbus cuts are reportedly due to coronavirus induced order freezes.
The aerospace giant Airbus plans to cut 15,000 jobs across all of its international sectors.
The company said that this is as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
It will cut 1,700 jobs in the UK.
There will be thousands of more job losses in Germany.
