Book­ing fees at Air France-KLM

The Irish Times - Business - - CAVEAT -

Air France-KLM has an­nounced it will in­tro­duce an €11 fee for book­ings made on GDS (com­put­erised reser­va­tions sys­tems) from April 1st, 2018.

Hard­est hit will be travel agents us­ing GDS sys­tems to make book­ings, which could re­sult in them pass­ing on the cost to clients.

The air­line group said it was im­ple­ment­ing the charge to adapt to mar­ket cir­cum­stances and to fur­ther im­prove its ef­fi­ciency.

Air France-KLM put for­ward the plan in its third-quar­ter re­sults, which showed an in­crease in op­er­at­ing prof­its of close to 39 per cent to more than $1 bil­lion (€860,000) and a 5.1 per cent rise in pas­sen­ger num­bers.
