         AIR FRANCE - KLM : AIR FRANCE - KLM : February 2013 Traffic

                                                              March 12th 2013

FEBRUARY 2013 TRAFFIC

  *Passenger: stable traffic and load factor

  *Cargo: reduced capacity and stable load factor

  *Increase in unit revenues in both the passenger and cargo businesses

February 2013 comprised a day less than February 2012 (leap year), leading  to 
a negative impact of around 3.4%, which offsets the positive comparison effect
due to industrial action at Air France in February 2012. 

Passenger business

February 2013  saw stable  traffic and  capacity, as  well as  load factor  at 
80.4%. The  group  flew 5.34  million  passengers the  same  number as  in  in 
February 2012. Unit revenues per  available seat kilometre (RASK)  ex-currency 
increased compared with February 2012.

  *On the  Americas  network traffic  declined  by 1.8%  while  capacity  was 
    reduced by 0.9%, leading to a 0.8 point drop in load factor to 83.8%. 

  *The Asia network recorded  a rise of  4.4% in traffic  for capacity up  by 
    3.2%. The load factor gained one point to 85.4%. 

  *On the  Africa and  Middle East  network, traffic  declined by  2.3%  with 
    capacity reduced by 2.7%. The load factor gained 0.3 points to 77.5%. 

  *The Caribbean and Indian Ocean network recorded a 4.7% drop in traffic, in
    line with the 4.8% drop in capacity. The load factor gained 0.2 points  to 
    87.4%.

  *The European  network, which  was most  affected by  industrial action  in 
    February 2012, recorded  a 2.0%  increase in  traffic for  capacity up  by 
    2.7%. The load factor stood at 68.6%, down 0.5 points.

Cargo business

In the context of Chinese New Year, cargo recorded a 4.3% decline in  traffic, 
in line with  a 4.2%  reduction in  capacity. The  load factor  was stable  at 
63.6%. Unit revenue per available tonne kilometre (RATK) ex-currency increased
compared with February 2012.

Recent developments

  *Air France-KLM announced its Summer 2013 program. Capacity growth will  be 
    limited to 1.5%  of which  +2.4% on  long-haul and  -2.1% on  medium-haul. 
    Long haul development  will be  focused on  the most  dynamic markets  of 
    Africa, Asia  and  Latin America.  The  medium-haul program  reflects  the 
    planned changes under  'Transform 2015': 6%  reduction in  point-to-point, 
    densification of rotations, reduction  in turn-around times, and  addition 
    of seats on the B737s.

  *On 20th February 2013, Air France and three unions representing the  cabin 
    crew signed a  statement of  agreements, enabling  the drafting  of a  new 
    collective agreement facilitating the necessary productivity gains in  the 
    framework of Transform 2015. Between now and March 14, these three  unions 
    will consult their members on the content of this agreement. 

Agenda

  *9th April 2013: March 2013 Traffic

  *3rd May 2013: First Quarter 2013 Results

  *16th May 2013: Annual General Meeting
