AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – KLM, the Dutch arm of Air France, on Thursday said it would cut an additional 1,000 jobs in 2021 and voiced its opposition to government plans for all passengers to require a COVID-19 test before flying to the Netherlands.
The airline said the new cuts come on top of 5,000 job losses in 2020. Separately, a coalition of Dutch airlines including KLM issued a statement saying they opposed a requirement for all inbound passengers to take a “fast” COVID-19 test within four hours of boarding a plane bound for the country.
“The Netherlands would be the only country in the world to adopt such far-reaching measures,” the companies said in a statement.
