Air France-KLM is pleased that the SNPL ALPA Air France council representing a majority of Air France pilots has voted 97% in favor of beginning negotiations with Air France management in order to increase the number of aircraft in the Transavia (France) fleet, currently capped at 40 aircraft.

“This new development is a strong sign of the improved relationship and positive culture taking hold within Air France,” said Benjamin Smith, CEO of Air France-KLM Group.

A larger Transavia France operation is designed to protect the current size of Air France mainline and to position Transavia France as a strong player in the competitive low-cost market.
