70% of Malindo Air staff to take unpaid leave

“We are ceasing all flight operations in April and foresee the situation to be the same in early May, ’’ Malindo chief executive officer Captain Mushafiz Mustafa Bakri said in a memo to staff.

PETALING JAYA: Malindo Air is ceasing all flights this month and asking 70% of its staff to take no-pay leave.

That involves over 3,400 of its total 4,900 workforce. If the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic worsens with countries continuing to close borders and airspace, the no-pay leave situation will drag into May.
