Air France warns of travel drop to France

Associated Press Associated Press 27/07/2016

Air France-KLM is warning of pressure on its finances amid concerns about France as a tourist destination after a string of deadly attacks.

The airline group reported on Wednesday a 5.2 per cent drop in second quarter sales to 6.22 billion euros ($6.84 billion) compared with last year, and about 40 million euros in losses from strikes.

Air France-KLM cancelled over 10 per cent of flights on Wednesday amid its latest strike, by cabin crew.

It warned the global context this year remains "highly uncertain," noting fuel prices and "a special concern about France as a destination."

The results came the day after Islamic State extremists attacked a Normandy church, killing a priest. It's the latest of several attacks on France.
