The turnaround at Schiphol, which appeared to see KLM bow to Russian pressure to return AirBridgeCargo’s slots, has worked out well for some. The threat to jobs at Menzies, where 101 cargo jobs were cut after the airport announced freighter slot reductions, is over. Menzies World Cargo has reinstated the jobs, according to local media..
