Air France Cuts 465 Jobs, Shrinks Domestic Services

Air France will cut 465 ground staff jobs from its domestic services as it reduces short-haul capacity under competitive pressure from low-cost rivals and high-speed trains, its parent company Air France-KLM has announced.

Voluntary Departure Programme

The job cuts, which were widely expected, will be carried out through a voluntary departure programme as the French airline reduces its domestic flights by 15% over the next two years, the Franco-Dutch group said in a statement.
