Coronavirus: Air France set to cut more than 7,500 jobs

Air France-KLM plans to cut more than 7,500 jobs at its French arm as the airline industry reels from the coronavirus crisis. Europe's second-biggest airline will cut 6,560 staff at Air France, with its regional French carrier Hop! losing 1,020 jobs, the company said on Friday. Air France also said that a wider "Reconstruction plan" would be presented at the end of July, along with one for the wider Air France-KLM group. Loans to Air France were contingent on the carrier scrapping some domestic flights in a bid to cut its carbon emissions. In June, Lufthansa said it planned to cut 22,000 jobs, and British Airways said in April that it could cut up to 12,000 jobs from its 42,000-strong workforce.
