Linklaters acted as lead adviser to Air France in the airline’s merger with KLM, creating the world’s largest airline by turnover, after the airlines received clearance from the European Commission. The firm said this deal paved the way for further consolidation of the European airline industry. The remedies package which has been agreed with the Commission consists primarily of improved access to take-off and landing slots for new entrants. The Linklaters EU/Competition team advising Air France was led by Olivier d’Ormesson, a partner based in Paris, and Paul McGeown, a senior associate in Brussels. They were assisted by Mathieu Guillaumond, Charles Pommiès, Philippe Noguès and Helen Crossley.
