Malindo Airways layoff 2200 staff on 30th October 2020, as part of cost cutting measures to recover from the COVID downturn.
Malaysian hybrid-full service carrier owned by Indonesian Lion Air Group reduces its workforce from 3200 to 1000 as the airline trimmed its operations.
“Thank you Malindo Air for the best memories. Being the only Punjabi female in aircraft engineering in Malaysia, so close to getting my license. It meant alot. 5 years 4 months were wonderful. Also being pregnant to the challenging breastfeeding journey. Haha.” tweet a female engineering staff.
Those who lost their jobs would receive three-month salary package in three instalments as part of their severance pay.
According to the staff, Malindo Air was “really secretive” about the retrenchment exercise as the staff didn’t even know that 30 October was their last day.
“They changed our schedule at 12am. I woke up and found out that I didn’t have to go to work anymore and two days later I got retrenched,” … “the saddest part about it was we planned to say goodbye and make a farewell party in the office but we were not allowed to come in anymore.” said another staff.
