The European Commission imposed tight conditions for state support to airline companies. Lufthansa will have to give up 24 slots a day in Frankfurt and Munich, Air France will reduce domestic flights by 40% and KLM the number of flights by 20%. In Italy, Alitalia's future looks more uncertain than TAP's.
To Jornal Económico, the vice president of the cosmetics giant explains that the initiative involves accelerating and increasing the sustainable efforts already underway within the company. By 2030, the brand wants 100% of the plastics used in product packaging to be from recycled sources.
TAP made a contribution of 3,5 billion euros to Portuguese GDP in 2018, weighing 1,7% in the creation of wealth in the country that year. Each carrier plane generates 29 million euros in revenue and 567 jobs in the national tourism sector.
