    The airline is planning to use the workers on its Barcelona and Madrid routes as well as on charter flights to the Canary Islands.

    According to the plan, the routes will be operated so that cabin crew can be based in Spain.

    Finnair is also planning to make changes in the composition of cabin crew so that a part of the crew on its New York route and on charter flights to Asia would be hired locally, in a similar way as on Finnair’s scheduled Asian routes.

    If implemented, the proposals could result in a reduction of around 100 cabin crew from the Finnair workforce.

    The planned actions are a part of the airline’s €140 million savings programme.

    The reductions would be implemented with temporary layoffs during 2013, and possible redundancies would be implemented, at the earliest, in 2014.
