AIR FRANCE-KLM FIRST QUARTER 2022

May 05, 2022

FIRST QUARTER 2022Postive EBITDA at 221 million euros, better than expectedStrong adjusted operating free cash flow at 630 million eurosthanks to outstanding sales in March

First quarter:

  • EBITDA positive at 221 million euros
  • Net income at -552 million euros, showing a 930 million euros improvement compared to the same quarter last year, supported by a revenue development at 4,445 million euros, which is 2,284 million euros higher than last year
  • Adjusted operating free cash flow positive at 630 million euros thanks to strong ticket sales. Compared to the same quarter in 2021 the adjusted operating free cash flow improved by 1,974 million euros
  • Net debt at 7.7 billion euros, down by 0.6 billion euros compared to end of 2021 thanks to a positive adjusted operating free cash flow

Group CEO Mr. Benjamin Smith said:

“The performance of the Air France-KLM Group over the first quarter of 2022 confirms that recovery is here. In spite of a challenging context, with the continued effect of the Omicron variant, the situation in Ukraine and the sharp increase of fuel prices, the Group posted once again a positive EBITDA and recorded strong bookings for the following quarters. March was notably very encouraging with a significant increase in demand for corporate and premium traffic, complementing the already strong leisure and VFR (visiting friends and relatives) demand across our worldwide network. This paves the way for a successful summer season in all our activities, which we continue to strengthen through our extensive transformation plan.”

Outlook:

Context:The start of the First quarter was hampered by the Omicron variant, mainly on the short and medium haul, while the outbreak of the Ukraine war resulted in higher fuel price and a slowdown in bookings during a very short period. The recovery accelerated in March with highly dynamic bookings for the summer season.

CapacityIn this recovery context, the Group expects capacity in Available Seat Kilometers for Air France-KLM Network passenger activity at an index in the range of:

  • 80% to 85% in the Second quarter of 2022
  • 85% to 90% in the Third quarter of 2022

All indices compared to the respective period of 2019.

Capacity in Available Seat Kilometers for Transavia is expected at an index above 100 for the second and third quarter compared to 2019.

YieldA healthy yield environment for the remainder of 2022 is expected with a strong summer demand resulting in yield levels above 2019

Operating result expected

  • Break-even in the second quarter
  • Significantly positive in the third quarter

CashAs of March 31 2022, the Group has a sufficient 10.8 billion euros of liquidity and credit lines at disposal.

Full year 2022 Net Capex spending is estimated at circa 2.5 billion euros, which is 80% fleet & fleet related and 20% related to IT and ground.

Air France-KLM made progress on the equity strengthening measuresThanks to KLM's strong performance, KLM's State backed RCF has been partly repaid on May 3rd for 311 million euros. In addition, KLM expects to strengthen its balance sheet with positive results. Further equity measures are being contemplated for the coming year.

Progress has been made on refinancing up to 500 million euros of Air France’s assets, mainly through quasi-equity instruments to redeem French State aid. Air France is currently engaged in advanced discussions with various partners.

The Group is closely monitoring capital strengthening measures such as a capital increase with pre-emptive rights for shareholders, as well as the issuance of quasi equity instruments such as straight and convertible perpetual bonds, to further restore equity and accelerate the State aid redemption. In total, these measures including the refinancing of Air France’s assets could represent up to 4.0 billion euros. The timing and sizing of each transaction will depend on market conditions and remain subject to the approval of the European Commission as well as legal and regulatory approvals.

In the First quarter 2022, the Air France-KLM Group posted a positive EBITDA of 221 million euros, up by 864 million euros at a constant currency compared to last year, and was driven by an increase of capacity and unit cost reduction. In parallel, the increase of load factor and yield generated an increase of the unit revenue. Net income amounted to -552 million euros in the First quarter 2022, an increase of 930 million euros compared to last year.

Thanks to transformation programs, unit cost down while Group capacity 23% below 2019Despite the Group capacity 23% down compared to the same quarter in 2019, the unit cost was 0.1% reduced at a constant fuel price and constant currency thanks to the ongoing transformation programs.

Compared to December 2019 the number of Full Time Equivalents (FTE’s) of Air France excluding Transavia reduced by 16% and KLM by 14%. In the First quarter Air France excluding Transavia decreased 400 FTE’s and another 300 FTE’s will leave this year. The total reduction of FTE for Air France excluding Transavia will be 17% compared to December 2019.

The staff cost decreased in the First quarter by 23% compared to the same quarter in 2019 thanks to FTE reduction and government support on wages. Corrected for government support on wages the staff cost decreased by 12%.

First quarter 2022 revenues increased by 105.9% at constant currency to 3,894 million euros. The operating result was negative and amounted to -309 million euros, a 760 million euros increase at constant currency compared to last year.

Passenger network: Unit revenue increase supported by both load factor and yield

  First Quarter
Passenger network 2022 Change vs 2021 Change constant currency
Passengers (thousands) 11,942 +167.3%  
Capacity (ASK m) 52,570 +56.5%  
Traffic (RPK m) 38,866 +189.3%  
Load factor 73.9% +33.9 pt  
Total passenger revenues (€m) 2,983 +192.8% +189.7%
Scheduled passenger revenues (€m) 2,879 +198.5% +193.6%
Unit revenue per ASK (€ cts) 5.48 +90.7% +87.6%

First quarter 2022, capacity in Available Seat Kilometers (ASK) was 56.5% higher than last year and at 75% of 2019 First quarter level which was in the middle of the Group’s guidance provided during the Fourth quarter 2021 results presentation.

The beginning of the First quarter was impacted by the spread of Omicron variant and additional travel restrictions, with the short and medium-haul routes more impacted. The borders reopening and progressive removal of travel constraints enabled the Group to post strong March results.

In response to the rise in fuel prices and other external costs, the Group proceeded to different fares increases during the first quarter on all its long-haul flights. The amount of the increase varies according to destination and class of travel, and applies to flights operated by Air France and KLM. First quarter 2022 yield was above 2019 thanks to strong demand and the quick implementation of the fares adjustments.

The First quarter result is driven by a strong performance on Caribbean & Indian Ocean, Africa and South America:

  • North Atlantic: Most travel restrictions have been lifted in the course of February/March with a strong capacity increase since mid-January.
  • South America saw very positive trends during the first quarter resulting in higher capacity, load factors at 85% and yield above 2019.
  • The Asian routes continued to post strong differences between the regions. During the First quarter China and Japan were rather closed while South East Asia and India posted positive results but could not mitigate the negative impact of China and Japan on the network.
  • Caribbean & Indian Ocean: Positive trends continued in the first quarter, with a very favourable fare environment and strong traffic performance.
  • Africa: The start of the year was complicated with Omicron variant. South Africa recovered quickly and the Group observed a good performance on West, Central and East Africa.
  • The Middle-East region stayed strong.
  • Medium-haul: Omicron spread lead to a strong capacity reduction at the beginning of the year. Yield is at 2019 levels helped by capacity constraints. Corporate traffic gradually increased during the quarter.
  • Short-haul: The traffic and yield were impacting by some restrictions and a lack of corporate traffic at the start of the year. March saw a good improvement of corporate traffic.

During the First quarter, Air France added three Airbus 350-900, two Airbus A220-300 and one Embraer 190 to its fleet while Air France phased out one Boeing B777-200, one Airbus A320, two Airbus A319, three A318 and two Embrear 145.KLM phased in two Embraer 195 E2 and phased out one Embraer 190. The Group will continue to introduce new generation aircraft to its fleet in order to improve its economic and environmental performance.

Cargo: Increase in yield drove the increase in cargo revenues

  First Quarter
Cargo business 2022 Change vs 2021 Change constant currency
Tons (thousands) 236 -11.9%  
Capacity (ATK m) 2,974 +10.7%  
Traffic (RTK m) 1,766 -14.9%  
Load factor 59.4% -17.8 pt  
Total Cargo revenues (€m) 910 +8.5% +5.8%
Scheduled cargo revenues (€m) 796 +6.4% +3.9%
Unit revenue per ATK (€ cts ) 26.78 -3.8% -6.1%

Compared to the First quarter 2021, capacity increased by 10.7% in Available Ton Kilometers, mainly due to the increase in belly capacity, while traffic decreased by 14.9% resulting in a decrease of load factor by 17.8 points. This reduction in load factor partly compensated by the yield increase led to a unit revenue per ATK down 6.1% at constant currency.

Cargo capacity in the First quarter is still 14% below the capacity in the First quarter of 2019 while the demand remains high, resulting in total revenues that are 66% higher than in the First quarter of 2019. This increase in revenues is fully driven by a higher yield thanks to the focus on Pharmaceutical and Express deliveries while the load factor is back at 2019 levels. The yield in North Asia increased significantly due to the closure of the Russian aerospace.

The Group ordered four Airbus 350 full freighter to strengthen his presence on the cargo market and signed a contract with DHL on Sustainable aviation fuel.

Transavia: Capacity approaching pre-crisis level with a load factor close to 80%

  First Quarter
Transavia 2022 Change vs 2021
Passengers (thousands) 2,581 +633.2%
Capacity (ASK m) 5,494 +443.1%
Traffic (RPK m) 4,268 +632.6%
Load factor 77.7% +20.1 pt
Total passenger revenues (€m) 249 +572.7%
Unit revenue per ASK (€ cts) 4.57 +24.0%
Unit cost per ASK (€ cts) 6.24 -59.9%
Operating result (€m) -92 +28

In the First quarter of 2022 the trend of the second half 2021 continued with a further recovery in demand for leisure traffic in Europe and North Africa. Compared to last year, the capacity in the First quarter increased by 443.1% while traffic increased by 632.6% and the number of passengers increased by 633.2%. Last year First quarter was heavily impacted by lockdown measures in France and the Netherlands.

The Operating result was negative at 92 million euros, although improved by 28 million euros compared to the First quarter of 2021.

Capacity in the First quarter was close to the level of the First quarter of 2019 and unit revenue even above First quarter 2019 mainly driven by a strong yield improvement.

The fleet of Transavia is approaching 100 aircraft to further capture the strong demand of leisure traffic in Europe.

Maintenance business: Operating margin above 2019 level

  First Quarter
Maintenance 2022 Change vs 2021 Change constant currency
Total revenues (€m) 831 +33.6%  
Third-party revenues (€m) 297 +15.1% +24.4%
Operating result (€m) 43 51 56
Operating margin (%) 5.2% +6.5 pt +7.3 pt

The First quarter operating result stood at 43 million euros, an increase of 56 million euros at constant currency versus the First quarter 2021. Although the First quarter 2022 result was still impacted by the Covid-19 crisis, the operating result is improving thanks to a higher activity and an operational improvement.   

Total revenues increased by 33.6% in the First quarter while third party revenues increased by 15.1% giving encouraging signs of the recovery. The increase in internal revenues is consistent with the activity increase of the Air France-KLM airlines compared to the First quarter 2021.The operating margin stood at 5.2% which is 1.3 point higher than the operating results in the First quarter 2019.

Air France-KLM entered into exclusive negotiations with CFMI for the engine configuration of its future Airbus A320neo family fleet.
