The British airline Virgin Atlantic plans to cut over 3,000 jobs – one third of their workforce – as the airline suffers from Covid-19 repercussions. The airline will also cease operations at Gatwick Airport and move all of its operations to London Heathrow. Shai Weiss, chief executive of Virgin Atlantic said in a statement that "now is the time for further action to reduce our costs, preserve cash and to protect as many jobs as possible. It is crucial that we return to profitability in 2021".
