National airline Finnair is looking to cut costs to remain competitive. The management wants to start with subcontracting and the hire of cheap labour. Negotiations with workers’ representatives started to target savings of 18 million euros. The ongoing talks could result in the elimination of some 540 cabin crew positions (or one-third of in-flight staff) as the company reaches for the savings target. Finnair currently employs about 1,500 cabin staff. The airline intends to hire cheaper labour from abroad.
