German carrier Lufthansa has confirmed will cut up to 800 jobs from its logistics business as part of its plans to reduce costs.
The airline group confirmed 500 Germany-based employees at Lufthansa Cargo would leave the company, with the majority expected to take early retirement.
Another 250-300 overseas-based roles will go in the next few years, with Lufthansa targeting cost savings of around €80m ($90m).
The cuts in the logistics division are part of wider company job reductions across Europe totalling 2,400 roles over the next five years.
Lufthansa said the cuts are a result of competition from its low-cost rivals and Middle-Eastern carriers.
