Air France-KLM: “The operating loss for the Fourth Quarter should be of the same order as last year’s, taking into account a later than expected pick up in unit revenues, lower capacities (in the region of -2% for passenger and -7% for cargo) and an increase of some 300 million dollars in the fuel bill. For the Financial Year 2010-11, all the measures to reduce costs, the anticipated slight progression in unit revenues, the launch of the new medium-haul product and the restructuring of the cargo business already underway enable us to target the objective, already announced, of a return to operating break-even excluding the impact of pre-2009 hedges,” Company statement.
