Lufthansa will likely cut over 200 jobs at its EuroAirport facility in Basel, Switzerland citing a ‘difficult market situation” in the region.
‘The facility, based at EuroAirport Basel, currently employs 304 staff, but that number will come down to 82 as part of the reorganization. Job losses will commence already this month. As part of the process, Lufthansa Technik Switzerland (LTSW) in Basel will also change its offering, focusing only on line maintenance, light base maintenance and logistics services at Basel, the MRO provider says.’
Engine maintenance as well as VIP tech maintenance will stop at the facility.
‘“Only a rigorous focus on one core product will create conditions that ensure the continued existence of Lufthansa Technik Switzerland in Basel,” LTSW CEO Rainer Lindau says in a statement.’
