Germany’s Lufthansa is readying to cut nearly 30,000 jobs this month, with a further 10,000 set to go in 2021, APA reports citing Simplefying.

A German newspaper reported the news at the weekend. The airline is targeting employee roles outside Germany and plans to sell its catering unit LSG this month. Next year, cuts will get made closer to home, with 10,000 Germany based jobs to go.

A widely cited report about the job losses was carried in the Bild am Sonntag newspaper on Sunday. That report appears to be a reaffirmation of a letter sent in October by the Lufthansa board to its roughly 130,000 employees. That letter said the aviation environment was unclear and difficult to predict.


“No one can reliably predict these effects. We are determined nevertheless to preserve at least 100,000 of the Lufthansa Group’s 130,000 current jobs. Even if we do not currently have nearly enough work for a workforce of this size.
