Norwegian To Take Over AF Flights From CDG?

Mon Apr 02, 2012 11:37 am

Mr. Alexandre de Juniac of Air France says that they are considering new alternatives to bring better economy into their Nordic services. One wanted solution would be to let Norwegian fly these services in cooperation whit AF, feeding their LH services. He's also mentioning the possibility of leaving all Nordic services from AMS with KL, for Norwegian to operate..

Just as a side note, AF and KL operates 54 flights a day in and out of Norway to AMS and CDG.

However, I doubt that Norwegian will be interested. I see this more of an tactical move from the AF management in order to boost internal confidence towards further negotiations aiming to reduce operational costs.

In Danish only:

Quote:
Man har endnu ikke talt med selskaber i Norden, men på et møde i Paris sagde chefen for Air France, Alexandre de Juniac, til branchebladet TTG Nordic, at man overvejer at finde alternative muligheder til at flytte passagerer fra Norden til de givtige interkontinentale ruter fra Paris og Amsterdam ved hjælp af nordiske operatører.

Her nævnte han Norwegian. Og indikerer dermed, at Air France KLM’s egne nordiske feeder-ruter, kan blive erstattet med Norwegian-ruter.

”Det er formentlig en god idé, hvis Norwegian kan feede ind til vores langrute linjer, både i Paris og Amsterdam, men endnu har vi ikke spurgt dem” siger Juniac til bladet. Han tilføjer: ”Vi taber penge i Europa, men tjener penge på de interkontinentale ruter. Derfor vil andre muligheder være oplagte”.

Surprising if correct.
A possible change for AF-KLM would be to allocate all Scandinavian flights to KLM.
As far as Norway is concerned for example, the summer timetable shows the highest number of connections ever.

Quoting Mortyman (Reply 2):

I would agree. Coming from Dublin, I thought we had it bad with all the EI and FR, but OSL is similar with SK and DY!!!

Haha! Yes, if there is one airport in Europe that is like Dublin - it's Oslo. Similar traffic levels, and totally dominated by two airlines.

According to de Juniac, as reported by Les Echos:
"the low cost subsidiary Transavia will see fleet and network extended - in proportions yet to be decided - under its current brand or another".
