From the Paper:

"The 'KLM Royal Dutch Airlines' and Air France was inclined to remain advanced of the developments happening around and formed the biggest airlines in Europe via the 1st significant merger of airlines across the borders to happen in several decades. (Tagliabue, 2003) The amalgamation paved way for the most powerful 'airlines group' in Europe in terms of 2 strong names of brands as well as aviation centers, namely 'Paris Charles de Gaulle' as also 'Amsterdam Airport Schiphol'. Both the airlines share the liabilities on 3 main operations at the same time upholding their own identities, such as 'passenger service', 'cargo operation' as also maintenance of aviation. ("Air France-KLM is very pleased to take part in the second round of CSA'S privatization process", n. d.) Air France and KLM have managed their alliance meticulously and specifically they have devoted themselves in taking advantage of the situation which is proportionate in terms of marketing and revenue generation, cost reduction and synergy and reduced competition. They operate concentrating on the long term vision and objectives. (Doganis, 2006)"
