Air France-KLM chooses not to bid

AIR France-KLM said yesterday it has pulled out of the bidding for Czech Airlines, also known as CSA, citing tough times for the airline industry.

Air France-KLM said in a statement that it informed the Czech Finance Ministry of its decision, and suggested that Czech Airlines focus on a recovery plan instead of a sell-off.

"The current economic environment has significantly impacted the airline business. Under such circumstances, Air France-KLM believes that CSA might focus on developing and implementing a stand-alone recovery plan aimed at restoring its profitability," the statement said.

The Czech state aims to sell its 91.5 percent stake in the carrier in a public tender this year.
