Air France said on Wednesday that it would cut 2,500-3,000 jobs in the next two years while avoiding forced redundancies, in addition to about 1,000 jobs already shed in the last 12 months.

A spokeswoman for the airline told AFP: "We should reduce our staff by 2,500 to 3,000 in the next two financial years."

Air France said in February that in the financial year to March, just ended, it had reduced its workforce by 1,000 to 1,200 people by not replacing all of those who retired, by not recruiting and by terminating temporary contracts.
