PARIS (Reuters) – Air France <AIRF.PA> wants to cut more than 7,500 job positions between now and 2022, reported BFM TV and Agence France Presse on Wednesday, citing trade union sources.

Air France is preparing voluntary layoffs in response to the coronavirus crisis, Chief Executive Ben Smith told Reuters on May 7, as he announced a 20% cut to structural capacity – which potentially affects some 9,000 of its 45,000 jobs.
