Qantas has reported an annual loss of almost A$2bn (£1bn) as it deals with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Australian flag carrier’s boss says trading conditions are the worst in the airline’s 100-year history.

The firm also says around 4,000 of its 6,000 planned job cuts are expected to be finalised by the end of next month.

“Recovery will take time and it will be choppy,” he added.
