In Germany, "we think that up to 500 jobs could be saved if the German government supported us, for example through the hydrogen aircraft development program. The extension of short-time working to 24 months could guarantee up to 1,500 additional jobs, "said Guillaume Faury in the German weekly Der Spiegel . In France, the layoffs would also amount to 3,500 and no longer 5,000, he adds.
