Air France-KLM has fully repaid the remaining 2.5 billion euros ($2.68 billion) from its initial EUR4 billion French state-backed loan granted during the coronavirus crisis.

The Franco-Dutch carrier said Wednesday that it was able to do so on the back of a solid cash position achieved at the end of 2022, as well as the EUR1 billion proceeds of the sustainability-linked bond issued in January.

"This full repayment will contribute to smoothing the group's debt profile, reduce financial costs and limit residual exposure to floating rates," it said.
