You know, Zehneh, Air France is seaking to increase capacity in Brazil, by adding new routes this year. Actually, they are working in 2 new routes: CDG-NAT and CDG-FOR, and the flight would be Paris-Natal-Fortaleza-Natal-Paris. If they start, they will compete against Iberia's MAD-FOR-REC-MAD flight!

Air France-KLM raises fares as costs rise

PARIS, April 1 (Reuters) - Franco-Dutch carrier Air France-KLM is raising its prices, it said on Friday, to counter increased costs as inflation accelerates.

The general price rises will allow the group to maintain a significant level of investment in the business, the airline said in a statement.

Fares are increasing by as much as 20-50 euros on long-haul return flights, between 4 and 14 euros on medium-haul services and 2 euros on short-haul routes, Air France-KLM said.

French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde said on Tuesday that a government-commissioned panel of independent economic advisors was forecasting inflation of 1.8 percent this year in France.

The government had previously forecast inflation at 1.5 percent in 2011, the same level as in 2010. It forecasts the French economy will grow 2 percent this year.

Air France to fly to city thrice every week
7 April 2011
Cape Times

AIR France is to fly directly to the city three times a week, "an extremely positive development", says Cape Town International Airport general manager Deon Cloete.

The first flight would be on November 3, Cloete said yesterday.

It is following in the footsteps of Emirates, Turkish Airlines and Edelweiss Air, opening the city to new business and tourism opportunities.

Paris is a central hub for flights to and from European countries.

Tourism MEC Alan Winde said they would try to persuade French business interests in Africa to relocate regional head offices to the city.

Winde said for the Western Cape to contribute to the creation of 5 million jobs promised by President Jacob Zuma by 2015, the tourism sector needed to expand four to five times.

"Big corporates cannot be expected to grow to that extent. It is up to the small, medium and micro enterprises to reflect such growth in jobs."

Cape Town Routes Unlimited chief executive Calvyn Gilfellan said: "Air France has shown incredible confidence by investing in Cape Town. It's up to us to ensure that they don't regret this decision."

More than 100 tourism decision-makers gathered at the tourism conference in the city yesterday. Economic growth and job creation were the key focus areas.

Air France a-t-il besoin de l'A320 d'Airbus remotorisé ?
Source : La Tribune.fr - 14/04/2011 | 13:06 - 185 mots |

Même si le directeur général d'Air France-KLM Pierre-Henri Gourgeon a maintes fois fait part de ses doutes sur les gains que peut apporter l'A320 remotorisé (NEO), le groupe étudie néanmoins ses performances. Un porte-parole d'Air France a confirmé l'existence de discussions avec Airbus révélées par BFM, qui précise qu'une décision est attendue mi-2011.

Air France is in discussion with Airbus about the A320neo and may make its decision this summer.

Hi, hkskyline. Air France has seen an important grow in Brazil's market. So the company want to start flights to 3 new destinations: Fortaleza, Natal and Brasilia. It, its very posible, that the CDG-BSB route may start a little late, because of the lack of slots in Brasilia. Also, the CDG-NAT-FOR-CDG flight, would start at the end of the year, for the summer time in the south Hesmisphere.

But does France have rights to pick up passengers between 2 Brazilian cities?

INTERVIEW: Stronger Dollar Would Concern Air France-KLM - CFO
2 June 2011

PARIS (Dow Jones)--The lower the dollar goes, the more Air France-KLM (AF.FR) Chief Financial Officer Philippe Calavia likes it.

Like other airlines, Air France-KLM has substantial exposure to fluctuations in the price of oil, and currency shifts can cause large swings in its fuel bill--EUR5.7 billion last year--once this cost is translated into euros. A stronger dollar increases the amount of euros it must pay its suppliers, while a weaker U.S. currency means it pays less.

When the euro depreciates against the dollar, it also tends to depreciate against other currencies like the British pound and the Japanese yen, and that attenuates the dollar's impact to some extent, Calavia told Dow Jones Newswires in an interview. The depreciation of the euro by nearly 7% against the dollar in the fiscal year through March 31 had a positive effect on the airline's dollar receipts, but the overall impact was negative because its costs in dollars outweigh receipts by $2 billion.

"We don't talk much about our foreign-exchange risk management, because it's much smaller than our fuel hedging," Calavia said.

The airline generally covers its dollar exposure two years ahead, and as a rule hedges half of its exposure, although that can change depending on its view of how exchange rates are likely to move in the medium term.

"That way, we know exactly how much we're going to pay for half of our dollar purchases, and for the remainder we suffer the market swings," he said.

Why is that? "Well, the sums involved aren't negligible, and the dollar has become extremely volatile. It can go quite easily from $1.20 to the euro to $1.50 in the space of six months; those are enormous swings," he added.

For the coming year, Air France-KLM is hedged at a rate of around $1.38 to $1.39 to the euro, compared with a spot price of about $1.44. If the dollar were to tumble to $1.50 or $1.60 to the euro, Calavia said, "it would hurt us for half of our exposure, but we're only talking about tens, not hundreds of millions, as it would be for our fuel bill. A 10-cent variation means a EUR20-, EUR30- or EUR40-million impact. That's not negligible, but not huge."

Air France-KLM hedges slightly more than half its currency cash flow exposure over a rolling 12-month period, with about 80% forward contracts and the remainder in options. For the following 12 months, currency risks are typically 30% hedged, and Calavia said the hedging period can be extended if the company sees opportunities for locking in favorable rates.

For purchases of aircraft and other big-ticket foreign-currency investments, the currency cover is stepped up from the time the contract is signed to the time of delivery, but that depends on the company's view of how the dollar will move over time. "If we buy a plane and at the time of the order the dollar is $1.60 or $1.70 to the euro, I think we would cover ourselves a lot" as the probability of an even greater depreciation would be limited, he said.

European Aeronautic Defence & Space Co. NV (EAD.FR), the parent company of commercial aircraft company Airbus, has tried will little success to persuade European airlines to buy Airbus jets in euros rather than in dollars, the international currency of the aviation and defense industries. EADS has most of its costs in euros while revenue is in dollars. It has argued that if airlines paid for planes in euros, they and it would effectively eliminate currency risk.

Calavia said Airbus several years ago had offered to bill Air France-KLM in euros for about half the cost of 12 superjumbo A380 planes that carry a sticker price of $375 million apiece. "The problem here is the price we would have to pay and our vision of the parity at the time of signing the contract," he said. "We said: 'That's fine, but what exchange rate are we going to use? The rate when we sign the order, or the average of the last five years, or what?' We didn't agree on it, and in retrospect we were right, because when we signed the deal the dollar was at around $1.20 to the euro and today we're over $1.40. If we had done a deal on the basis they proposed, we'd be paying 15% more for our aircraft in euros."

Calavia said one way to reduce the currency risk in aircraft purchase contracts might be to set the price in euros using an average exchange rate over a period of two, three or five years with a revision clause or a cap in the case of a sharp fluctuation.

"The main thing to bear in mind is your vision of how exchange rates are likely to move," he said. "Today, in view of the state of public finances in the U.S.--and the euro zone, too, but mainly in the U.S.--there's no reason to expect an extremely strong appreciation of the dollar over the next 12 months."

"We might be tempted to say: 'Let's wait for the dollar to depreciate even more.' It will be even cheaper for us."
