Air France-KLM: “The economic environment continues to be uncertain, while the fuel price in euros remains at record levels. The annual fuel bill is expected to increase by 1.1 billion euros. In this context, the group is highly focused on the negotiations underway, the successful outcome of which will enable it to significantly improve its economic efficiency between now and 2014. The results of the First Quarter lead the group to maintain its expectations for Full Year 2012, of a reduction in unit cost at constant fuel price and currency and a maximum level of net debt of EUR6.5 billion at year end. The operating result for the First Half is expected below the level of last year, while the Second Half will see the benefits of the first ‘Transform 2015’ measures feeding through,” Company statement.
