MOSCOW, February 24 – RIA Novosti. Aeroflot has reduced the total income of flight personnel and pilots in connection with a decrease in flight hours amid the coronavirus pandemic, Aeroflot CEO Mikhail Poluboyarinov.
Aeroflot is a unique team, keeping the team up is one of the most important tasks. We have already implemented a measure, to which the employees reacted with understanding – this is a decrease in the total income of flight personnel and pilots in connection with a decrease in flight time, “Poluboyarinov said in an interview with RBC.
He noted that such a measure gave significant savings.
“In my opinion, this is a global trend – retaining staff, but reducing salaries for less flight hours,” he added.
By how much the salaries of pilots and flight personnel have decreased, Poluboyarinov did not specify.
