Lufthansa makes tough cargo cuts at Austrian

HOT on the heels of the news that Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines are merging their cargo operations comes the news that the merge will also entail severe cutbacks, mainly on the Austrian side.

Lufthansa took over the struggling carrier last year and is busy making severe cuts and savings. In this latest move an estimated quarter of the jobs in cargo and maintenance would be cut.

Also as part of the move Vienna will become the Lufthansa group’s third cargo hub after Frankfurt and Munich.
