paris - The French government wants to help Air France to become more competitive and to assist the airline in negotiations with the trade unions. That is what the French Minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire said in an interview with the newspaper Les Echos.
At Air France it has been uneasy for some time due to a series of strikes due to a dragging wage conflict and the resignation of CEO Jean-Marc Janaillac in May. Le Maire has regularly expressed concern about the unrest at the company. According to the minister, the government now wants to help Air France to return the peace. The trade unions announced new actions for the company later this month.
The French government is a large shareholder of the Franco-Dutch aviation combination. Paris has indicated several times that it does not intend to sell its stake in the group.
