Air France History

Formed from a merger of Air Orient, Air Union, Compagnie Générale Aéropostale, Compagnie Internationale de Navigation Aérienne (CIDNA), and Société Générale de Transport Aérien (SGTA) in October 7, 1933, Air France was France’s national flag carrier for 70 years prior to its 2003 merger with KLM.
In 1946, Air France began to offer a direct scheduled service between Paris and New York. By 1948, the airline operated one of the world’s largest fleet, which numbered 130 aircraft.
By 1952, the Air France network had expanded to cover 250,000 kilometers. The airline entered the jet age in 1953 with the world’s first jetliner, the short-lived De Havilland Comet series 1. This cut travel time in half and added much comfort to flights. Eventually, Air France was to operate one of the largest 747 fleets in the world.
The first supersonic transport (SST) service, from Paris to Rio, was offered by the airline in January 1976. Supersonic service to New York and Washington began to be offered the following year. The Paris – New York route was covered in three hours and 23 minutes, at around twice the speed of sound.
On 30 September 2003, Air France and Netherlands-based KLM Royal Dutch Airlines announced the merger of the two airlines, the new company to be known as Air France-KLM. The merger became reality on 5 May 2004. Air France-KLM became the largest airline in the world in terms of operating revenues, and third-largest (largest in Europe) in passenger kilometres.
