AIR FRANCE – KLM


<p style="text-align: justify">AIR FRANCE KLM Group was born in 2004 from the merger of two national airlines, the French AIR FRANCE and the Dutch KLM, and today it is Europe&rsquo;s largest airline group. AIR FRANCE, which has been France&rsquo;s national carrier since 1933, recently celebrated 60 years of operating in Israel. And KLM, a pioneer in civil aviation since its establishment in 1919, has been flying to Israel for 70 years (starting in the pre-State days). Together with their strategic partner Northwest Airlines (NWA), AIR FRANCE and KLM are members of the global airline alliance SkyTeam, which partners 10 airlines operating some 15,000 flights a day to 728 destinations in 149 countries. (Guy &ndash; I got different figures when I checked the SkyTeam website, which says: &ldquo;With our 11 member airlines and 16,409 daily flights to 841 destinations in 162 countries, SkyTeam makes life easier for frequent business travelers.&rdquo; Shall we update our numbers too? &ndash; Margery) This global network provides passengers with a perfect travel experience (Isn&rsquo;t this a bit strong? I don&rsquo;t think a perfect travel experience is possible in today&rsquo;s world &ndash; Margery), offering more destinations to choose from and the accumulation of more miles in the company&rsquo;s Flying Blue frequent flyer&rsquo;s club. AIR FRANCE operates 14 flights a week on its Paris-Tel Aviv route, and KLM offers seven flights a week to and from Amsterdam. Websites in Israel: www.airfrance.co.il www.klm.co.il</p>
