Air France and Air France-KLM have made a grand gesture in the wake of yesterday’s fire at the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris.

Benjamin Smith, CEO of Air France-KLM, along with Anne-Marie Couderc, chairman of Air France-KLM, and Anne Rigail, CEO of Air France, announced that Air France will provide free transport for all official partners involved in the reconstruction of the iconic structure.

Describing the cathedral as “a symbol of French history,” Air France and KLM said in a statement that their teams around the world “have been deeply affected and saddened since yesterday.”

The Air France-KLM group says in the coming days it will set up a voluntary donations fund for its customers to help finance the reconstruction work.
