Tivoli in Copenhagen is severely affected by the corona eruption and is therefore planning a major round of fire. Tivoli will fire up to 440 employees – including permanent and seasonal workers.
This is equivalent to about 20 percent of employees.
2020 could end up with a loss of up to DKK 100 million, the company said in a statement.
Significantly fewer guests due to coronavirus
Tivoli kept closed for two months during the coronation and only opened on Monday this week.
Significantly fewer guests are expected than usual, as tourists from most of the world are not allowed to travel to Denmark, and the number of guests is not expected to be normal in the short run.
That’s why you have to cut it, says Chairman Tom Knutzen.
The situation is serious for Tivoli. We are looking into a 2020, where Tivoli’s visitor numbers and turnover are strongly characterized by the fact that far fewer foreign tourists come to Copenhagen because of the border closure and restrictions on accommodation in the Capital.
This also seems to be reaching into the coming years. Therefore, it is necessary for Tivoli to make changes to the organization in order to reduce labor costs and thus restore a sustainable business, he says.
