Finnair to cut around 150 jobs as it responds to Russian airspace shutdown

Finnair has completed negotiations to change its plan to cut 200 jobs, which began in early October. The plan was linked to Finnair’s new strategy, published on September 7, which aims to restore Finnair’s profitability. Due to the drastic changes in Finnair’s operating environment caused by the closure of Russian airspace, Finnair is now cutting around 90 jobs in Finland. Some employees may be offered a new position at Finnair. 57 jobs will be cut outside of Finland. The staff reduction is planned to be carried out by the end of February 2023.

“Finnair employees are dedicated professionals who have already had to strain in many ways, first during the pandemic, and then because of the war unleashed by Russia. I am very sorry that we have to take these difficult but necessary measures in our quest to restore our profitability,” says Topi Maner, CEO of Finnair.

The change negotiations concerned about 770 employees in Finland who work in the positions of supervisor, manager and expert. Finnair has around 5,300 employees worldwide.

Finnair offers those made redundant support for re-employment through the NEXT change security programme. Among other things, this includes individual career coaching and training opportunities.

Finnair continues to take decisive action to restore its profitability, for example by reducing unit costs and increasing unit revenues.
