Reading Time: < 1 minute

British Airways pilots are going to take a 50% pay cut in April and May as the airline battles to survive the coronavirus crisis.

The drastic measures mean BA’s 4,500 pilots will take two weeks of unpaid leave in each month – but the reduction to their wages will be spread over the next three months.

In a letter to staff seen by Sky News, British Airways said the plan had been agreed with the pilots’ union BALPA to fight “the immediate threat to the business in the face of COVID-19 and the unprecedented impact this is having on the airline”.
