Air France to cut 465 jobs


Air France is planning to cut 465 jobs following first quarter losses.

Parent company Air France-KLM said that there would be no forced job losses, and the cuts would be done using a voluntary system.

“Representatives of personnel have been informed of a plan to seek up to 465 posts on the domestic network,” the statement read. “There will be no imposed departures.”

Air France employs approximately 3,200 staff in metropolitan France.  Marseille and Orly will be the most affected airports with 65 job losses each.
