Air France To Cut 2,800 Jobs Through Voluntary Redundancy

Will miss financial targets for 2013

|

French carrier Air France has said it plans to cut a further 2,800 jobs through voluntary redundancy as it struggles to cut costs.

The airline, part of the Air France KLM group, had already announced plans to cut 5,100 jobs from its 69,000-strong workforce as part of a turnaround plan.

But it has now admitted it will miss its financial targets for 2013.
