Cockpit association: “Easyjet must not let Berlin bleed dry”

On Tuesday it was announced that the low-cost airline Easyjet will further reduce its Berlin-Brandenburg base and that numerous jobs will also be closed. This annoys the pilots' union Vereinigung Cockpit.

The management of the low coster is currently planning in the German capital to cut up to 275 jobs. From internal sources, which have not been officially commented on or confirmed, it can even be heard that even more employees have to fear for their jobs. Easyjet became the largest provider in Berlin by taking over numerous aircraft from routes from the insolvency estate of Air Berlin.

The Cockpit Association is of the opinion that since then Easyjet has “regularly caused uncertainty among employees with cuts”. Now it is being demanded that employees should “finally be given more security and long-term perspectives”.

Marcel Gröls, chairman of the collective bargaining policy of the Cockpit Association: “The company must now live up to its social responsibility. After the workforce had to cope with so many cuts in recent years, Easyjet must not let the Berlin location bleed any further."

    Even if Her Gröls doesn't fit, Easyjet will simply calculate economically and withdraw both machines and (as a logical consequence) cut staff. That's a special feature of the LCC. At the same time, BER cannot work with fees that do not cover the costs. And if other airports, especially in D, were willing to act like this, the whole problem would not exist: the flight prices would have to rise accordingly, no one would have to discuss “loss-inducing district runways” to the previous extent, as well as the denunciation of 2Drei -Euro-Fuchzig”-flights would go back.
