Are layoffs just around the corner? Air Berlin ground crews could soon be out of jobs. Press reports now say the bankrupt airline is dropping all of its long-haul flights beginning October15th.
Germany's flagship carrier has reportedly addressed EU competition concerns over its planned takeover of insolvent rival Air Berlin, offering to give up a substantial number of airport starting and landing slots.
In the first tranche of redundancies, Air Berlin’s entire ground staff may be out of a job within weeks. Talks with Lufthansa and easyJet over the insolvent airline's assets are ongoing.
There are still too many aviation competitors in the skies over Europe. A looming carve-up of Germany's second-largest and insolvent carrier, Air Berlin, is pointing to even more consolidation in the sector.
After nearly four decades of plying the skies, Germany's once second-largest airline has stopped operating, with many employees fearing to be left without work amid attempts to sell the remaining assets.
