KLM want to better partnership with railway system

KLM has put forward the idea of creating a partnership between airlines and railways companies across Europe. KLM CEO, Pieter Elbers, stated that if airlines and railway  companies were to co-operate better,  they would be able to reduce the amount of congestion throughout many international airports in Europe.

Elbers said that passengers should see the railway as the best option for short-haul travel between European cities, but because railway  companies don't offer quick and cheap enough services, customers will always choose to fly. Elbers continued that if people were to travel short distances by train, the aviation industry would be able to reduce its amount of short-haul services. This would reduce costs and be much more environmentally friendly, according to the KLM CEO.

Air France and KLM maintain their strong partnership

Rumour has it that there have been questions hovering over why KLM needs its long-term partner Air France when it is standing on its own two feet so well at the moment. It seems, however, according to external sources, that both airlines will continue to rely on the support of one another for the foreseeable future.  That said, it also seems possible that the partnership may be holding both airlines back in the European market, as together they seem unable to compete against European aviation giant, Lufthansa. Air France and KLM will continue to be successful together, but the question remains whether one will want to branch off and attempt to take the top spot. There are also rumours that AccorHotels is looking to invest in Air France-KLM, which could turn the airline into a full-service travel superpower.

Air France-KLM dampen profit and growth expectations

Air France-KLM has come to the conclusion that profits may fall this year due to strikes. Air France tickets may have suffered from the   high demand for tickets thanks to robust economies, which has helped to ease the pressure on fares.  The results came as Air France staff staged the 13th day of walkouts this year and come hours ahead of a crunch ballot for the group’s chief executive, who has said it would be hard for him to stay if staff vote against the pay proposal.  Last year, the group made an operating profit of 1.488 billion euros, although that has been restated to 1.9 billion euros due to IFRS accounting rule changes. Air France believe that the walkouts may have cost the company 300 million euros. KLM reservations can be made with Alternative Airlines.
