Air France-KLM (December 2014)

13 freighters

1.3 million tonnes of cargo

255destinations


Air France-KLM Cargo are the world’s leading cargo operators excluding integrators

With Air France and KLM, customers benefit from a single contact point, a single contract and network, and a choice of two operating systems, via Paris-CDG or Amsterdam-Schiphol, or a combination of the two hubs. The two airlines are also part of SkyTeam Cargo, the world’s leading cargo alliance, covering the main strategic commercial routes.

An energetic response to the crisis  


Facing the crisis which severely hit the air cargo transport business, Air
France has responded dynamically by carrying out a mass-scale restructuring of its cargo sector.

Air France and KLM mainly use passenger aircraft with large-capacity holds for transporting cargo. The use of passenger aircraft holds represent low operating costs –30% less than freighter capacity costs – and meet most requirements. Aircraft hold capacity currently accounts for 70% of Air France’s cargo capacity.

Air France-KLM Cargo has adapted its sales policy, streamlining the network and developing the interchangeable nature of the Paris-CDG and Amsterdam-Schiphol hubs. 

G1XL cargo hub

Air France Cargo handles its freight at one of Europe’s largest cargo hubs, G1XL, at Paris-CDG, benefiting from modern technology including the automated parcel stocker and the electronic labelling of containers.
