Le Maire: Paris, Brussels close to deal on Air France

An agreement on the terms of a bailout for Air France between the European Union and France could come in the following days, French Economy and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire stated on Monday.

"We are nearing a deal. It is a matter of days," Le Maire said during an interview with France Info radio. "Concessions are being asked to ensure fair competition between Air France and other carriers," he added.

Reports by French media hinted the day before that the deal could entail Air France giving up fewer airport flight slots at Orly airport than what the European Commission requested.
