Travel Company Tui’s Airline to Halve Its Fleet

BERLIN — German-based travel company Tui aims to roughly halve its Tuifly airline’s fleet of planes as it deals with the economic fallout of the coronavirus crisis.

News agency dpa reported that the company said Friday it has presented its plans to employees, and they would also involve closing bases such as those in Cologne, Bremen and Muenster-Osnabrueck.

Tuifly previously planned to operate 39 Boeing 737 jets.

The company said talks between management and employee representatives will address how many jobs are affected. Tuifly has about 2,000 full-time posts.

Tui is being supported in the crisis by a government-backed loan.


GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization said Friday that COVID-19 no longer qualifies as a global emergency, marking a symbolic end to the devastating coronavirus pandemic that triggered once-unthinkable lockdowns, upended economies and killed millions of people worldwide.
