Boeing To Cut More Jobs As Pandemic Losses Mount

New York (CNN Business)Boeing announced it will cut an additional 7,000 jobs as its losses continue to mount following a plunge in revenue.

The aircraft maker had already announced was reducing staff by 19,000 jobs earlier this year, through a combination of voluntary and involuntary layoffs. It said Wednesday it expects to get down to about 130,000 jobs by the end of the year, which would mean an additional 7,000 job cuts, in addition to the natural attrition at the company throughout the year. In August the company had warned employees there would be additional job cuts coming, as it offered a new round of buyouts.

The company posted a loss of $754 million, excluding special items, in the most recent quarter as revenue fell $5.8 billion, or 29%. Airlines have put the brakes on new plane deliveries and are canceling orders because of the sharp drop in air travel caused by the pandemic. Boeing gets most of its revenue from an aircraft sale at the time of delivery.

“The global pandemic continued to add pressure to our business this quarter, and we’re aligning to this new reality,” CEO Dave Calhoun said on the earnings call.

While Boeing’s third-quarter loss is far narrower than its $3.3 billion and $1.7 billion losses in the second and first quarters, respectively, it’s clear the company is under increasing stress from the Covid-19 pandemic’s hit to airlines. It burned through $4.8 billion in the quarter, double its cash burn in the second quarter.

Shares of Boeing (BA), a Dow component, were down about 3% in early trading Wednesday.
