  • The management of Swiss has decided not to forego the bonuses for 2019 despite the crisis.

  • However, the outgoing boss Thomas Klühr wants to wait for his amount until Swiss has repaid the loan to the federal government.

  • At the weekend, the top of the Lufthansa Group, to which Swiss belongs, sent an email to the workforce announcing a dreary winter.

The aviation industry is in one of the worst crises in its history. At the weekend, the top of the Lufthansa Group, to which Swiss belongs, sent an email to the workforce announcing a dreary winter: The number of passengers will probably be less than a fifth of the previous year’s figure. Swiss reacts, among other things, by leaving older, more inefficient machines on the ground and sending some of the employees back into short-time work, as reported by the “Tages-Anzeiger”.

Against this background, it seems strange that the management of Swiss has decided to pay out a bonus for the successful 2019 financial year. Three members of the committee will receive the money these days, as a company spokesman confirmed to the “Tages-Anzeiger”. In return, they agreed to forego variable remuneration and an increase in the base salary for this year and “until further notice”.

The outgoing boss Thomas Klühr, on the other hand, decided not to claim the amount until Swiss has repaid the 1.5 billion loan guaranteed by the federal government. That will not be the case for a few years, if at all.
