Europe   Air France-KLM will present the redundancy plan to a union
Air France-KLM, which blamed higher fuel costs and price competition for its operating loss will present the redundancy plan to a union and management meeting on May 13, La Tribune said on its website.

Another 200 departing staff would not be replaced, it added.

An Air France spokesman confirmed that a voluntary plan to cut short-haul ground staff would be presented but declined to give details on the proposals ahead of the meeting.

He also said that a company review had pointed to a need to hire more than 1,000 people across the company's business this year.
