Latam airline dismisses 1,400 people in Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru

The Latam airline, one of the main airlines in Latin America, reported on Friday that it decided to dismiss 1,400 workers belonging to subsidiaries in Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru as a result of the serious consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Despite all the efforts we have made to take care of jobs, we are forced to make this difficult decision. The impacts of COVID-19 are profound and it is inevitable to reduce the size of the Latam Group to protect its sustainability in the medium term," company CEO Roberto Alvo said, according to a statement.
