Czech Airlines to Lay Off 200 By April

Czech Airlines plans to reduce its workforce to 5,100 people—leaving 100 staff per plane—in an effort to save $4.7 million. The cuts are expected to be completed by the end of March, reports a Czech newspaper. About 142 staff members in August agreed to an offer to leave the company. All dismissals are part of a long-term restructuring plan aimed at making the national carrier financially stable by 2008, the paper said.
