The Dutch travel giant Booking.com is cutting thousands of jobs

“Unfortunately, like many other travel companies, the corona crisis means that we have to take the very difficult step of reducing our global workforce,” a spokesman told Financieele Dagblad. The dismissal round was announced to employees on Tuesday morning.

Booking.com, which employs 5,500 people in its (headquarters) office in Amsterdam, expects the travel industry to take many years to recover. In the depths of the corona crisis, the number of bookings on the website was 85 percent lower than usual.
