Air France Reforms




PARIS -- Pilots of France's state-owned airline Air France have voted to accept a pay cut in exchange for company shares, enabling the airline to implement its three-year reform plan.


The majority pilot union, SNPL, said Wednesday that 78.2 percent of pilots who voted agreed to the reform.


The proposal finalized in October provides for a definitive, but voluntary, annual pay cut of 11,575 francs ($2,104) in exchange for Air France shares.


The cut represents between 2 and 3 percent of salary.
