American Airlines Is Cutting 19,000 Jobs by October
The COVID-19 pandemic keeps taking it's toll on several industries but air travel is one of the sectors that have been hit the hardest.
CNBC is reporting that American Airlines plans on cutting about 19,000 jobs by October when the federal stimulus aid runs out.
American Airlines said that though air travel has recovered a little bit, it's nowhere near the business they were doing a year ago. American Airlines said that the fourth quarter of 2020 is projected to only bring in about 25% of the business they did in the fourth quarter of 2019.
This isn't just happening with American Airlines either. United and Delta Airlines both might have to make cuts to their workforce due the slowdown of air travel through out the United States. Plus, there isn't any international travel due to the United States being barred till we get the COVID-19 pandemic under control. Even if you do get to travel you will have to quarantine depending on the country you are traveling to.
American Airlines right now has several different flights in the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. They have daily flights to and from locations such as Chicago's O'Hare Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth. They also have flights to and from Philadelphia and New York's La Guardia airport but those won't return till 2021.
No word yet on how this will affect the current flights at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport but we will have to wait and see what happens.
