ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss travel retail group Dufry <DUFN.S> is cutting jobs, trimming costs and renegotiating rents after organic sales fell 3.8% through March 8 as the coronavirus pandemic hit global travel.

"We do not anticipate any liquidity problems during the crises," Dufry said on Thursday. "The action plan is monitored on a weekly basis and includes initiatives to accelerate sales volumes, maintain gross profit margin levels, reduce personnel and other expenses as well as renegotiate rents."
