The Air France-KLM group is preparing a giant aircraft order by the end of the year. The new aircraft will enter the fleet of Air France, but they will also be deployed at KLM, Transavia and Hop! Jean-Marc Janaillac, the CEO of the Air France-KLM group explained during a hearing in the French Senate (video below, in French).
“We will launch a call for tenders to renew part of the HOP!, Air France, Transavia and KLM fleet to manufacturers Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer. We want to find a good offer for the best price. The specifications of the tender will be released in the first quarter of 2018 and we will probably decide by the end of this year.”
