is to merge most of its operations and management, three years after the airlines’ merger, to reduce costs further, to La Tribune newspaper reports Monday, without citing sources.
May 24, Air France-KLM should announce the merger of fleet management operations, flights and tariffs operations and international commercial operations, La Tribune reported.

Flights, tariffs and fleet operations will be managed by the French while the Dutch will retain the management of the freight operations and procurement.
