Insiders report this to De Telegraaf. For many years there has been fear that KLM will be made a lot smaller by the French and Schiphol Airport, which would lose its position as an international airport, which is so important to the Dutch economy. In the negotiation game about the billion-dollar support for KLM, the cabinet has arranged that Air France will soon be able to transfer jobs, flight routes and other activities to Paris much less easily.
Ministers Hoekstra (Finance) and Van Nieuwenhuizen (Infrastructure) have had tough negotiations about the support for KLM. In The Hague, ministers are expected to present the final support package with all the details on Friday.
