Airline Air France is on the brink of collapse. That said the French Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs Agnès Pannier-Runacher on the French radio station Sud-Radio.
According to her, the company must be saved from destruction and at the same time, there is a task to reduce emissions.
Air France will announce a significant reorganization in the short term. The precise details of the interventions will be presented to unions later on Friday.
All in all, the French branch of Air France-KLM would like to cut 7,500 jobs.
According to Pannier-Runacher, the company should reduce its workforce without being forced to layoffs.
