Media - The Forum on Supply Chain Risk + Compliance Management 2016

The addition of KLM enables the Air France-KLM group and China Eastern Airlines to strengthen the entire network connecting Europe to China.

On 1 July 2016, Air France-KLM signed a new agreement with China Eastern Airlines which now includes KLM as part of the existing joint venture between Air France and the Chinese airline.

The addition of KLM enables the Air France-KLM group and China Eastern Airlines to strengthen the entire network connecting Europe to China. These new agreements also optimize capacity on the Amsterdam-Schiphol – Shanghai route, in addition to the agreements on the Paris-Charles de Gaulle – Shanghai route. In this way, all Air France-KLM and China Eastern Airlines customers enjoy a more varied choice of frequencies and connections, adapted schedules, harmonized ground and inflight services and competitive fares.

Patrick Alexandre, EVP Commercial, Sales and Alliances at Air France-KLM said: “This agreement is another crucial stage in the partnership between China Eastern Airlines and the Air France-KLM group. Present in China for nearly 50 years, Air France has developed its cooperation with China Eastern Airlines in the form of a joint venture which is now extended to KLM and which further enhances the products and services we offer our customers on a daily basis”.

Air France-KLM and China Eastern Airlines, a strategic joint venture 

With this new joint venture, Air France-KLM and the Chinese airline have agreed to consolidate their alliance and optimize routes to Shanghai. By extending the joint venture to KLM, the Group is also enhancing the attractiveness of its two connecting hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol.

In addition, Air France and China Eastern Airlines have a privileged cooperation, having signed a partnership and the first code-shares in 2000. In 2010, the Chinese airline also joined Air France-KLM in the SkyTeam alliance and in 2012 joined Air France in a major joint venture optimizing the entire network between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and China.

The Group now offers 41 weekly flights* to Shanghai on a joint basis with China Eastern Airlines:

14 weekly flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle operated by Air France;
13 weekly flights from Amsterdam Schiphol operated by KLM;
14 weekly flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and 4 weekly flights from Amsterdam Schiphol operated by China Eastern Airlines.
