Activity
 
Important markets still affected by the various geopolitical crises

important markets for the group.

million euros, up 15% versus 30th June 2010. The engines and components activities continued to perform
well over the quarter.  
 
Total revenues amounted to 6.22 billion euros, up by 8.7% after a negative currency effect of 1.2%.
 
Well controlled unit costs  
Operating costs rose 8.7% and by 6.2% excluding fuel. Over the quarter, the group realised 129 million
euros in savings in the context of the ‘Challenge 12’ programme, the annual objective of which has been
revised up from 470 million euros to 500 million euros. In equivalent available seat kilometres (EASK), unit
costs were stable, and declined by 3.0% at constant fuel prices and exchange rates, for production in EASK
up by 8.8%.  
 
The fuel bill rose by 232 million euros to 1.67 billion euros (+16%) under the combined effect of a 7% rise in
volume, a favourable currency effect of 8% and a rise in fuel prices after hedging of 19%. Employee costs
stood at 1.93 billion euros, up by 3.5%, of which a third linked to the payment of an exceptional bonus.  
 
The operating result amounted to -145 million euros (-132 million euros at 30th June 2010). The adjusted
operating result stood at -73 millions euros. Net interest costs declined from 96 million euros at 30th June
2010 to 87 million euros at 30th June 2011. The currency result included in the item ‘Other financial income
and costs’ remained negative at -33 million euros (-100 million euros a year earlier).  
 
Net result, group share stood at -197 million euros (versus 736 million euros a year earlier, which included
the capital gain of 1.03 billion euros realised on Amadeus). The net result adjusted for non-recurring items
was -212 million euros versus -252 million euros a year earlier. Earnings per share and diluted earnings per
share stood at -0.67 euros (2.5 euros and 2.0 euros respectively at 30th June 2010).
 
Operating cash flow of 345 million euros
 
Investments net of disposals amounted to 436 million euros at 30th June 2011 (475 million euros in the
equivalent quarter 2010-11). Operating cash flow was 345 million euros. At 30th June 2011, Air France-KLM
had cash of 3.9 billion euros and renewed credit lines of 1.85 billion euros of which 1.6 billion euros renewed
for 5 years in 2011 at Air France and at KLM.
 
Shareholders’ funds declined by 312 million euros versus 31st March 2011 to 6.91 billion mainly reflecting the
negative net result. Net debt stood at 6.04 billion euros (5.89 billion euros at 31st March 2011). The gearing
ratio was 0.92 (0.85 at 31st March 2011).
 
 
Outlook
 
The operating environment remains uncertain due to the situation in Japan, Africa and the Middle-East and
the Eurozone crisis. Moreover, fuel prices are still at high levels and the euro remains volatile. For the
upcoming Winter season, the group has decided to reduce long-haul capacity growth (including the Martinair
passenger activity) from 5.1% to 2.7% (-2.4 points). In this context, the group continues to target a positive
operating result for the calendar year 2011.
