Strategic developments

For the 2015-2016 winter season (from 25 October 2015 to 26 March 2016), Air France-KLM total capacity will increase by 1.5% compared with the previous winter season. Growth will be driven by long-haul passenger network operations (+1.7%) and Transavia activity (+9.1%), while medium-haul passenger network operations will decrease by -1.8%.

  • On long-haul, Air France-KLM is mainly increasing capacity to North America and the Caribbean while reducing capacity to other destinations including Brazil, Japan and East Africa. Two destinations are suspended: Fukuoka (Japan) from Amsterdam-Schiphol by KLM and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) from Paris-Charles de Gaulle by Air France.
  • On medium-haul, Group capacity is stable on departure from the hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol, apart from the suspension of Air France services to Vigo (Spain), Verona (Italy) and Stavanger (Norway).
  • Transavia will welcome 3 new Boeing 737-800 aircraft as from January 2016 to support its growth in France and the Netherlands.
  • KLM will take delivery of its first 3 Boeing 787 this winter, which will fly to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai and Rio de Janeiro during this season. In parallel, the Boeing 747 will be definitely withdrawn from the Air France fleet in January 2016.
  • The Group continues to roll out its new products and services, with more than 60 long-haul aircraft equipped at the end of the year. In addition, the cabin renewal program continues on medium-haul: the new leather seats, already in place onboard 24 Air France Airbus A319, will be fully deployed on 25 Airbus A320 during the first half of 2016.

Agenda

  • 8 December 2015: November 2015 traffic
  • 11 January 2016: December 2015 traffic
  • 8 February 2016: January 2016 traffic
