    Air France was initially formed in 1933 by the merger of five France-based airlines. Following a 2004 merger with Netherlands-based KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Air France became a subsidiary of the Air France-KLM Group. An essentially private airline with state ownership at just under 20%, Air France continued to fly under its own brand name after the merger. Operating a fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, Air France-KLM is the largest airline in the world based on operating revenues and the largest in Europe based on passenger miles flown.
    Within France, Air France flies to 20 destinations. Internationally, the airline flies to 150 destinations in 83 countries on all six major continents.
