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

Air France CEO Frederic Gagey stated (18-Sep-2013) the carrier plans to expand Transavia France activities, noting the carrier has lower costs than Air France. 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]
