Detailed talks on the proposal can now proceed
Air France has taken another step towards setting up a new low-cost subsidiary, with its pilots voting to accept the principle of such a move. Detailed talks on the proposal can now proceed.
The new unit, dubbed Boost, would operate at lower costs out of Charles de Gaulle in Paris. The initiative comes as Air France-KLM seeks to cut costs by at least 1.5% this year.
Just over 58% of pilots at Air France supported the idea – in principle rather than a specific plan – in a referendum with a turnout of 73.8%. The proposals would cut pilot costs by 15% and cabin crew costs by 40%.
