Air France flights to France to get interesting........

Air France flights to France are set to get a bit of an update in april 2010 say inside sources.

Unsurprisingly feeling the pinch of low cost airlines. Pierre Gourgeon, Air France-KLM Group CEO said “We have seen a slow erosion of our unit revenue since 2002 on short-and medium-haul routes. Despite the adjustments and changes that we have made in 2003/4 especially with more competitive fares, we continue to see our unit revenue plunging to levels unseen for over a decade. We had to react strongly.”

With this in mind, Air France is set to morph into two new segments, Premium and Voyageur.

Air France's Premium scheme will include business fares plus fully flexible economy fares, while Voyageur will offer low economy fares with little flexibility to change aiming at re-dressing the balance with the low cost airlines such as Ryanair and easyJet.

Gourgeon said that he is "convinced that we will see a rapid turn-around as we will gain market shares again in Europe thanks to our low fares in both leisure and business travel segments”
