Treasury: Major airlines to take $25B in aid to meet payroll
By DAVID KOENIG
AP Airlines Writer
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says 10 airlines intend to get their share of $25 billion in federal aid to keep workers employed through September. That includes the nation's six biggest airlines. The assistance will likely be a mix of cash and loans, and Treasury's terms would let the government take a small ownership stake in the leading airlines. The carriers did not want to give up equity, but they had little leverage - their business has collapsed as the COVID-19 pandemic reduces air travel to a trickle. The biggest airlines say they are losing up to $100 million a day.
