France’s biggest airline is continuing to see success, particularly with passenger traffic to countries in Asia.
Asian countries proved particularly popular, with the carrier reporting that its Asia network’s traffic grew 6.9 per cent year-on-year.
Meanwhile, passengers travelling with Air France on its new route from London Heathrow to Los Angeles will be able to keep up with current affairs while they travel. The airline says it has teamed up with the BBC to offer customers daily news bulletins at 30,000 feet.
Werner Claasen, a United Airlines spokesman in Frankfurt, told the DPA news service that Delta Airlines, Lufthansa, Air Berlin and KLM/Northwest have all seen ticket sales to the US increase in recent months.
