Air Berlin to cut up to 900 jobs
On January 15th airberlin began to implement its “Turbine” turnaround programme, a comprehensive scheme to ensure that Germany’s second largest airline focuses on its key markets on the basis of a stringent business model. The two-year programme extends across all divisions. The airline will be expediting the optimisation of its network, fleet and timetables already under way, improve its offering, sales and customer orientation and slim down its administration and working processes as well. “Turbine” has defined initiatives of around 400 million euros by the end of 2014 to achieve a lastingly competitive result. The programme covers all areas of operation and involves cutting about 900 jobs.
