Elyes Mnakbi, CEO of national carrier Tunisair, announced on Thursday, November 28, the job cut of 1,200 employees over the next three years, i.e. 400 jobs per year from January 2020.
Speaking to Mosaïque FM, he said the decision is part of a reform plan to address Tunisair’s financial problems, noting that record figures were registered in 2018, despite difficult economic conditions.
In the same context, Mnakbi reported that Tunisair has registered more than 3 million passengers and 1500 million dinars of income.
He pointed out that the national flag carrier made profits of 24 million dinars last July after abandoning unprofitable routes and the rental of aircraft.
“The national company has earned 60 million dinars thanks to these measures,” he said.
