*Excluding air space closure

Air France-KLM: “The first quarter saw an acceleration in the recovery in activity levels, particularly in business travel and cargo. Forward bookings for the second quarter are solid, but uncertainty surrounding the economic environment and the fuel price leads us to remain prudent for the second half of the year. Nevertheless, in view of the positive indications from the medium-haul transformation and the quicker than expected turnaround of the cargo business, our objective for full year 2010-11 is of operating break-even, excluding the impact of the air space closure in April,” Company statement.
