Switzerland's SAir group, says workers at the German tourism company, LTU, of which it owns nearly 50 per cent, have been asked to accept a ten per cent pay cut as part of a rescue package.

SAir group's Beatrice Tschanz said workers would be asked to accept reduced pay for six to 18 months, and hoped the Düsseldorf-based concern would be back on its feet in three years.

LTU has been in financial trouble, mainly due to the explosion of flight prices and a high dollar exchange rate. SAir is looking for partners for LTU in England, France and Germany.
