Air France to expand Transavia France activities, Air France domestic presence costing too much

18-Sep-2013 6:42 PM

He also noted that Air France's domestic market presence costs too much, adding that the carrier will reduce frequency between Paris and some provincial cities. This could result in the elimination of more than a quarter of the Air France routes from Paris Orly Airport to European destinations outside France. [more - original PR]
