Brussels, 6th May 2021 - Today, the European Commission proposes to support 1,200 former workers of KLM in the Netherlands and 500 former workers of Finnair in Finland, who lost their jobs due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on passenger air transport.
The proposed total of €6.8 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) will help them find new jobs through further education or training or support them to start their own business. The measures co-financed by the EGF range from job-searching advice and vocational orientation, to training, hiring benefits and support to start a business.
Participants may receive additional incentives, such as allowances for travel, accommodation and moving house to cover related expenditure incurred during job-seeking or training. In the case of former workers of Finnair in Finland, the total estimated cost of the support measures is €2.9 million, of which the EGF will provide €1.8 million. In the case of former workers of KLM in the Netherlands, the total estimated cost of the support measures is €8.4 million, of which the EGF will provide €5 million. Finnish and Dutch authorities will finance the remaining amounts. The Commission's proposal will need to be approved by the European Parliament and the Council. 

press release is available online.
