PARIS: The French government on Friday called on Air France to avoid mandatory layoffs as the airline prepared to announce some 7,500 job cuts to cope with a collapse in travel due to the coronavirus pandemic. Managers at the airline, part of Air France KLM Group, are due to meet labor unions in Paris on Friday to detail the redundancy plans affecting some 15 percent of all employees, including pilots, stewards and ground staff. At least half of the cuts will likely entail voluntary departures and retirement plans, sources familiar with the matter said this week, while 1,000 jobs are likely to be cut at Air France s HOP airline. But the prospect of possible compulsory layoffs has raised alarm among workers and the French state, which has granted Air France $7.87 billion in aid to help it survive the pandemic. A successful labor reorganization is one where there are no forced departures, junior economy minister Agnes Pannier Runacher told Sud Radio on Friday. Pannier Runacher said the government s aid package for the airline, which included state backed loans, was justified as the carrier was on the edge, but called on Air France managers to pursue cutbacks responsibly. Aircraft maker Airbus plans to cut some 15,000 jobs across Europe with a third of those in France sparked similar warnings this week, as a wave of restructuring triggered by the virus outbreak begins to hit. Under CEO Ben Smith, who joined from Air Canada in 2018, Air France KLM has sought to cut costs, improve French labor relations and overcome governance squabbles between France and the Netherlands, each owners of close to 14 percent of the group. DUBAI: Egypt s three month suspension of flights due to the coronavirus pandemic weighed on the aviation sector, which lost up to $62.23 million during the period air travel was restricted.
