Air France and KLM to swap Boeing and Airbus orders in efficiency drive
PARIS (Reuters) - Air France-KLM
The swap means that in the 2021-2023 timeframe, the six remaining Boeing 787 ordered for Air France will be transferred to KLM, and the current 7 Airbus A350-900s on order for KLM will be transferred to Air France.
"This is the first step toward harmonizing and simplifying the Air France-KLM Group fleet at its two major airlines," said Air France KLM CEO Benjamin Smith.
