New Air France and KLM aligned fare structure in Economy class

For travel on its European and North African network, Air France and KLM will introduce a new, fully combined fare structure based on offering simplicity to the customer by having a choice between Light, Standard and Flex fares.

Each fare has a unique set of services and conditions:

If you are cost-conscious and travelling light, without checked baggage and do not require full flexibility, you can choose the Light fare. The Standard fare offers you key attributes when you need to check in baggage. The Flex fare, as the name suggests, offers you full flexibility. This fare also includes SkyPriority, ensuring you a smooth and efficient experience at the airport.

In addition, extra services can be purchased separately, such as paid baggage and seating.

Combine our new fare structure with the benefits of your corporate contract:

  • Flexible ticket deadlines
  • High priority waitlist
  • High priority in re-booking and seat confirmation
  • High protection against denied boarding

These fares are available in the full range of booking classes ensuring first and last seat availability. You can therefore always choose between Light, Standard and Flex fares. Our service on board does not change as refreshments, snacks and meals (depending upon the time of day and length of the flight) remain free of charge to all customers.

With this new fare structure, the strength of Air France and KLM brings its European customers an aligned fare product with a strong combined network, giving more choice in fares and services than ever before.

These new fares are being rolled out across the network of 96 destinations and will be implemented by mid‑November. In addition, corporate fares will be progressively rolled out from the same date.

For more information, contact your travel manager or Air France or KLM representative.

Edito by Stéphane Donders

The end of the year is approaching fast. On 24 November, we will have the pleasure of hosting our clients and partners for a convivial gathering at a unique venue. At the event, we will provide insights into Traveldoo's strategy, look at our plans for future innovation and product development, and discuss feedback from clients on their experiences.


Traveldoo is part of the Expedia group and there are some really great discussions across and between the different product departments about “what works” and what the future of travel booking is. The topic of Door-to-Door bookings came up recently, an approach tried in different ways by Rome-to-Rio, KDS and Serko amongst others.

Policy Dynamism

Companies have created, communicated and tried to enforce travel policies for a long time. Certainly a lot longer than most of the technology we use today for business travel has been around. However, even today, many of the company policies that are implemented resemble closely the types of policy ubiquitous in the past, telling travellers, in simple terms, what is “OK”.
