The Swiss want to return to the profit zone of the summer
Switzerland wants to reach 50 percent of capacity for 2019 this quarter. That makes it possible to fly again profitably, says Swiss President Dieter Franks.
The Swiss want to fly again profitably from summer onwards. According to its own information, the Lufthansa subsidiary will need 50 percent of the production capacity for 2019. “We assume we’ll do it in the summer,” said Swiss President Dieter Franks from “The Sunday”.
At the start of the month, Swiss Chief Financial Officer Marcus Pinkert said upon introducing a massive job cut of 650 full-time jobs that the airline would continue to incur losses in the second quarter. For the third quarter of important summer business, Switzerland expects capacity between 50 and 55 percent.
The Swiss president expects the epidemic to change flights for longer periods of time for passengers as well as fewer bookings and business trips. “It’s possible that the mask mask will be with us for a few more years,” he said. The airline will also continue to follow strict rules for boarding and cleaning. (chm / dpa)
