The group’s long haul capacity is up 0.3% compared with winter 2013-14. While services to the Middle East and Africa will be cut, capacity to Asia will rise 0.7% compared to last winter.

Taking advantage of the seasonal nature of certain destinations, Air France is increasing capacity during the peak season with an additional daily flight to Bangkok, and a fourth frequency to Kuala Lumpur. In China, capacity to Wuhan is being increased by one weekly frequency.

Looking at the airlines broader strategy, Air France-KLM has chosen to move upmarket with the progressive introduction of new products and services of the highest global standards.

On the long-haul network, 22 Boeing 747s have been equipped with KLM’s new World Business Class and 777-200s will be finished before the summer of 2015. The 777-300 fleet refit will follow on later, and by the end of 2016 about 80% of the KLM fleet will be done.

Air France continues to roll out its new Best cabins, with five Air France Boeing 777s to be ready by end-2014. Flights to Singapore and Jakarta have already been equipped with these brand new products. Services to Tokyo-Haneda and Shanghai will be added to this winter.
