The former commander of the aircraft, specialist safety Alexander Romanov explained why Chinese airlines have decided to dismiss more than hundreds of Russian pilots. This writes Ura.ru.
According to Romanov, from the outbreak of coronavirus transportation airlines reduced. “I know that they sometimes carry five to ten passengers on large aircraft,” he said.
A former pilot suggested that in case of dismissal of the majority of Russian pilots will be able to continue to work abroad because they have European and American certificates.
Earlier it was reported that the Chinese airlines will hold a mass of cuts and fired more than a hundred Russian pilots. It was noted that we are talking about “downtime without payment” and on early termination of contracts. At the same time Chinese airlines fired not only pilots from Russia, but also other foreigners working in crews.
