Delta Air Cuts Tech Projects, Slashes 1,300 Vendor Jobs

US-based carrier Delta Air Lines has suspended several technology projects due to the Covid-19 pandemic, impacting over 1,300 jobs at its outsourcing vendors in its home country and in India. Delta has cancelled thousands of flights in the United States and to international destinations in Europe, the UK and India, hurting its operations.

“We should brace for some impact from the airline and travel sectors for the next two quarters. Revival should start for airline business towards the end of this year,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief executive of Greyhound Research.
