A whole bunch of businesses have suffered tremendously due to the Covid-19 pandemic and AirAsia is no different.
Yesterday (Saturday, 11th April), Tony Fernandes took to his Instagram to share that the low-cost airline is facing its biggest challenge yet, with pay cuts between 15% and 75% depending on the staff’s seniority.
