Air France KLM reaches pensions deal for KLM staff


PARIS (Reuters) – Air France KLM <AIR.PA> has struck a pensions scheme deal for its KLM pilot and cabin staff unions, in changes that the airline said would have a 311 million euros (£277 million) impact in the third quarter.

The airline said that in future, the KLM pensions scheme would qualify as a collective defined contribution scheme, and yearly pension contributions would have a limited volatility.

KLM would make a one-off lump sum payment of 194 million euros to the pension fund, it said.
