Air France has announced to reduce 7,500 positions across its network.
Air France, in its latest press release, has outlined its plans to adapt its workforce for the future.
The majority of the cuts are expected at Air France. Out of its 41,000-strong workforce, the current predictions show a reduction of 6,560 jobs over the next three years.
Due to a “favorable age pyramid,” per the airline, the airline anticipates over 3,500 natural departures.
In essence, the carrier believes its older workforce will allow the airline to reduce its workforce naturally.
Air France is working with its unions to implement plans for voluntary departures, early retirement arrangements, and “professional and geographical mobility.”
There will also be proposals for internal job offers for employees whose position will no longer exist and who do not wish to be included in the departure plan.
