KLM to reorganise budget operations

KLM is to merge its Martinair and Transavia units into a specialist budget airline division, each operating under their own names, the Telegraaf reports on Thursday.

Both budget airlines are 100%-owned by KLM and will be given a single management board. The reorganisation is necessary because of the effect of the economic crisis as well as the new taxes on flying introduced last year.
