Air France pilots ratify company pay offer, giving new CEO victory

AIR FRANCE-KLM's French pilots approved a pay agreement that put an end to last year's strike threat and provide new CEO Ben Smith more room to stage a come-back.

The accord, hammered out during months of talks between management and unions, was approved by 85 per cent of pilots, the SNPL union said.



Air France said pilots will get an average 4.3 per cent pay increase, and the company has said the agreement will improve flexibility.



Air France's two pilot unions had given preliminary backing to the proposal last month, with the larger and more powerful SNPL union holding off on a final signature until pilots were consulted in a vote.



The wage increase comes on top of a four per cent rise granted to all employees last year.
