COVID-19 has caused thousands of temporary layoffs, and massive flight cancellations at Air Canada.

The carrier will temporarily lay off more than 15-thousand unionized workers beginning this week. It will also cut between 85 per cent and 90 per cent of its flights.

The layoffs will continue through April and May.

The two-month furloughs will also affect about one-third of management and administrative and support staff.
