Air France pilots approve low-cost Transavia expansion - CEO

PARIS, July 31 (Reuters) - Air France's main SNPL pilots union has approved an expansion of its low-cost Transavia services, group Chief Executive Ben Smith said on Wednesday.

Plans to expand Transavia beyond the 40-plane limit currently imposed by a labour agreement was put to the SNPL membership in a referendum. Pilots voted by 78% to approve expansion of the fleet, which now stands at 30 planes, the Air France-KLM CEO told analysts during a results presentation.
