The losses are explained by the crisis in the aviation sector caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The airline’s sales in the business year have decreased by 82%.
Given the most difficult period in the airline’s 99-year history, Qantas Airways said it would implement a plan to eliminate 6,000 jobs and stop using 100 aircraft for at least a year to save tens of billions of dollars.
The airline predicts that the coronavirus pandemic will continue to have a huge impact and losses will be recorded this business year as well.
