For the first time, America's Test Kitchen (ATK) will open its doors at its brand new state-of-the-art kitchen and studios and take visitors behind the scenes. The public will have the opportunity to meet and learn from the personalities of ATK, including co-hosts Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison, and longtime cast member and Chief Creative Officer Jack Bishop. The ATK cast and crew will be joined by some of New England's most celebrated chefs. A full lineup of culinary talent will be announced at a later date. The festival will feature three ticketed events, Taste of Innovation, Backstage ATK, and Boston EATS. Taste of Innovation, taking place on Friday, October 27, 2017, will feature some of Boston's best chefs, paired up with ATK Test Cooks. Together they will prepare two unexpected and innovative recipes using the same local ingredient. On Saturday, October 28, 2017, Backstage ATK, a VIP event featuring live and intimate cooking demonstrations with ATK chefs, will take place within ATK's new facilities, and offer VIP ticket buyers the opportunity to go behind the scenes of America's Test Kitchen. Boston EATS, an all-day culinary event, will take place on Saturday, October 28, 2017, and include tastings from New England's top culinary talent, as well as cooking demonstrations, interactive panels, book signings, and more. Boston EATS' lineup and event specifics will be released later this spring, tickets for all three events will go on sale this summer. Boston EATS thus far has signed Jamestown, Holland America, Clarke, Woodford Reserve, and Citizens Bank as sponsors. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Future Chefs, a nonprofit organization that prepares urban youth for careers in the culinary arts; and Community Servings, a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. Boston EATS is being co-produced by Agency 21, a leading event company, specializing in Culinary Management and Sponsorship. Agency 21 currently works with over thirty large scale culinary events in seven states on an annual basis including Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival, Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival, Vegas Uncork'd, Dan's Taste of Summer, and now ATK Boston EATS. America's Test Kitchen will soon be headquartered at The Innovation and Design Building, owned and operated by Jamestown and located at 21 Dry Dock Avenue in Boston, MA 02210. Press images can be found here. About America's Test Kitchen: America's Test Kitchen, filmed in a real working test kitchen just outside of Boston, is dedicated to finding the very best recipes for home cooks. Fifty full-time (admittedly obsessive) test cooks spend their days testing recipes 30, 40—up to 100 times, tweaking every variable until they understand how and why recipes work. They also test cookware and supermarket ingredients so viewers can bypass marketing hype and buy the best quality products. As the home of Cook's Illustrated and Cook's Country magazines, and publisher of 12 – 14 cookbooks each year, America's Test Kitchen has earned the respect of the publishing industry, the culinary world, and millions of home cooks. The America's Test Kitchen television show was launched in 2001; and the company added a second television program Cook's Country in 2008. To learn more, visit www.americastestkitchen.com.

The Board of Directors of Air France-KLM, chaired by Jean-Marc Janaillac, met on 3rd May 2017 to approve the accounts for the First Quarter 2017 Air France-KLM carried 20.9 million passengers during the first quarter 2017, an increase of 5.2% over last year. The passenger capacity measured in ASKs was up 3.3% and traffic measured in RPKs up 4.2% resulting in the Group loadfactor to increase by 0.7pts to 85.4%. Revenues amounted to 5.7 billion euros, up 1.9% compared to 2016. The first quarter 2017 confirms a resilient start of the year. The operating result stood at -143 million euros, down 44 million and up 28 million euros at constant currency. At constant currency, the Group unit revenues measured in revenues per EASK were down 1.4%, confirming the improvement in trend observed since the end of 2016, driven by a decrease in the Passenger network unit revenue of 0.5%, a Transavia unit revenue decrease of 3.4% and a Cargo unit revenue decrease of 4.9%,. The operating result was mainly driven by the good unit cost performance, amounting to a saving of 89 million euros compared to last year. The unit cost per EASK was down by 1.7%, on a constant currency, fuel price and pension-related expense basis, against a capacity increase measured in EASK of +2.8%. The productivity, measured in EASK per FTE, increased by 5.1% at KLM  where the capacity increased by 5.4%, and by 1.8% at Air France despite capacity almost stable (+0.8%). The average number of staff decreased by 400 FTEs at constant scope (scope impacted by the sale of Cobalt at year end 2016 resulting in a decrease of 746 FTEs). As a result, the total employee costs including temporary staff decreased by 1.7% at 1,812 million euros. The fuel bill amounted to 1,120 million euros, a slight increase of 24 million euros, whereas the fuel bill in dollar was stable. The operating result was notably impacted by currency effects, which had a negative impact of 72 million euros. Adjusted for the interest portion of operating leases (1/3 of annual operating lease expenses), the operating margin was -0.8% versus -0.2% at 31 March 2016. EBITDA amounted to 269 million euros, stable compared to previous year. Sum of individual airline results does not add up to Air France-KLM total due to intercompany eliminations at Group level The group net result stood at -216 million euros, a decrease of 61 million euros compared to the first quarter 2016. As announced at the Full Year 2016 results presentation, it has been decided to change the Cargo reporting as per fiscal year 2017 to include it in the passenger network results. As a result the business segment Network consists of both the passenger network and cargo business. The combined result amounted to -100 million euros, down 32 million euros and up 37 million euros at constant currency. The first quarter confirms the improvement in the passenger unit revenue. The capacity  measured in available seat kilometer (ASK) was up by 1.9%, wheres the traffic (RPK) increased by 2.8% leading to a loadfactor increase of 0.8 point. The unit revenue at constant currency was down 0.5% strengthened by the strong premium class performance with unit revenues at constant currency up by 4.9%. Both airlines are confirming the trend. With capacity stable (ASK +0.1%), the unit revenue at constant currency at Air France was stable at -0.1%, whereas the unit revenue at constant currency at KLM was down by 0.5% while capacity increased by 4.7%. A smooth turnaround for Cargo? During the quarter, the capacity measured in ATK was reduced by 1.1% in which full-freighter capacity was reduced by 14.8%. Due to the small increase in traffic (RTK) of 0.5%, the load factor increased month-by-month leading to a 1.0 point increase during the quarter. The unit revenue decrease was limited to 4.9% at constant currency. During the quarter, the third party revenues further increased, strengthening the growth of the Maintenance business. Third-party revenues amounted to 460 million euros, up by 6.7% driven by the contracts gained over the past few years. Over the period, the maintenance order book recorded a 7.0% increase to reach a record of 9.5 billion dollars, securing future growth. The ramp-up of Transavia is on track, with capacity up by 27% in France and up by 28% in the Netherlands. Transavia carried 2.5 million passengers, up 29%, capturing the growth in the European leisure market. The timing of Easter negatively impacted the unit revenue in March and the operating result. The reduction in net debt was supported by the improvement in the working capital. The operating free cash flow was positive at 329 million euros up by 133 million euros compared to 31 March 2016. As a result, net debt amounted to 3,378 million euros at 31 March 2017, versus 3,655 million euros at 31 December 2016, a decrease of 277 million euros. The adjusted net debt decrease by 137 million euros to 11,029 million euros. The global context remains highly uncertain regarding the geopolitical environment in which we operate and regarding the fuel prices. The forward bookings indicate a resilient start to the second quarter. The Group is targeting a growth for the passenger group (Air France, KLM and Transavia) of between 3.0% and 3.5% measured in ASKs for 2017 in order to regain the offensive in long-haul and to improve the performance in medium-haul. To improve its competitiveness, the Group plans to act on all levels by pursuing and amplifying the initiatives already under way in terms of unit cost reduction. The unit cost reduction target for 2017 is in excess of 1.5% at constant currency, fuel price and pension related expenses. Based on the forward curve of 21 April 2017, the full year 2017 fuel bill is expected to be slightly down in dollars compared to 2016 and to reach 4.7 billion euros[1]. Regarding the balance sheet, the Group is maintaining strict capex discipline, targeting positive free cash flow before disposals. The 2017 investment plan stands at between 1.7 billion euros and 2.2 billion euros. The Group is pursuing a further reduction in net debt, targeting an adjusted net debt to EBITDAR below 2.5x mid cycle by the end of 2020. We plan to present the comprehensive Trust Together vision at the forthcoming Investor Day, scheduled for 12 May 2017 at the Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport starting at 8:00am. The First Quarter 2017 accounts are not audited by the Statutory Auditors. The results presentation is available at www.airfranceklm.com on 4th May 2017 from 7:15 am CET. A conference call hosted by Mr Gagey (CFO) will be held on May 4th 2017 at 08.30.

The Board of Directors of Air France-KLM, chaired by Jean-Marc Janaillac, met on 15th February 2017 to approve the accounts for the Full Year 2016. Jean-Marc Janaillac made the following comments: "Within a contrasting environment, Air France-KLM delivered an improvement in its 2016 results, reflecting the initiatives and efforts of its employees and the loyalty of customers. While the fall in the oil price significantly reduced the Group's costs, the geopolitical context, competition and industry overcapacity all resulted in lower unit revenues. With Trust Together, our strategic project, we are resolutely committed to regaining the offensive, reinforcing our ability to innovate and improving our competitiveness. In an economic and geopolitical context that remains very uncertain, and faced with aggressive competition, the status quo is not an option." * Reclassification of Servair as a discontinued operation: the consolidated financial statements of the Group were revised as of 1st January 2016 in order to reflect Servair as a discontinued operation. The 2015 financial statements have been restated accordingly. Details of this restatement can be found in the appendix of this press release. Air France-KLM carried 93.4 million passengers in 2016, an increase of 4.0% over last year. Revenues amounted to 24.8 billion euros, down 3.3% compared to 2015. The full year 2016 results were in line with targets with the main KPIs showing an improvement. The operating result stood at 1,049 million euros, up 269 million and up 558 million euros excluding currency effects. The operating result was notably impacted by a pilots strike in June and a cabin crew strike in July, which had a negative effect of 130 million euros. Adjusted for the interest portion of operating leases (1/3 of annual operating lease expenses), the operating margin was 5.7% versus 4.4% at 31 December 2015. EBITDA amounted to 2,714 million euros, an increase of 327 million euros The increase in the 2016 operating result was mainly driven by the fuel tailwind and the good cost performance, while there were negative effects coming from the pressure on unit revenues and currencies. The unit cost per EASK was down in line with the target of 1.0%, on a constant currency, fuel price and pension-related expense basis, against a capacity increase measured in EASK of +1.0%. On a strike-adjusted basis and corrected for the increase in profit-sharing expenses, the unit cost per EASK decreased by 1.7%. The average number of staff decreased by 1,850 FTEs (1,400 FTEs at Air France, 450 FTEs at KLM), resulting in a productivity increase measured in EASK per FTE of 2.3% at Air France and of 4.2% at KLM. As a result, on a constant pension-related expense and profit-sharing basis, employee costs decreased by 0.5% due to restructuring efforts in both Air France and KLM, taking into account a net increase in the profit-sharing expense of 77 million euros. Total employee costs including temporary staff were stable (up 0.1%) at 7,474 million euros. The fuel bill amounted to 4,597 million euros, a sharp 25.7% fall compared to 2015. The decrease was driven by the drop in the fuel market price which had a positive impact of 927 million euros and the drop in fuel hedging losses which were down 605 million euros compared to 2015. In the full year 2016, currencies had a negative 97 million euro impact on revenues, mainly driven by the weakening of several currencies, notably the GBP, BRL and CNY. The negative effect of currencies on costs amounted to 192 million euros driven by the strengthening of the dollar. The net impact of currencies on the operating result thus amounted to a negative 289 million euros. All businesses contributed to the improvement in operating result. The passenger network operating result amounted to 1,057 million euros, up 215 million euros and up 456 million euros excluding the negative currency effect. Despite the challenging operating environment, the Cargo results remained stable on a reported basis, whereas both Maintenance and Transavia recorded further improvement in their operating results. Both Air France and KLM contributed positively to the results. Full year 2016 operating result stood at 372 million euros at Air France and amounted to 681 million euros at KLM. * Reclassification of Servair as a discontinued operation. Sum of individual airline results does not add up to Air France-KLM total due to intercompany eliminations at Group level A strong passenger network performance with relatively resilient unit revenues. Strict capacity discipline (available seat kilometer (ASK) up by 0.7%) and active yield management limited the downward pressure on unit revenue, particular on premium traffic, whose long-haul unit revenue declined by 1.4%. Ancillary revenues (paid options) were up by 12% amounting to 515 million euros. On the long-haul network, capacity measured in ASKs was up 0.6%, while unit revenue was down 4.7% excluding currency impact. In addition to the soft local flows to France as a result of terrorism, the capacity-demand imbalances observed on different parts of the network caused additional downward pressure on unit revenues. Nevertheless, the estimated long-haul operating result was up 250 million euros to 1,320 million euros. On the medium-haul hub feeding activity, capacity increased by 2.0%, whereas unit revenues decreased by 5.4% excluding currency. The medium-haul network was particularly impacted by the weak local flows to France affecting the operating result which decreased by 60 million euros. As planned, medium-haul point-to-point capacity was further reduced by 3.9%, leading to an improvement in unit revenues of 1.0%, contributing to the 20 million euros improvement in the point-to-point operating result. The Group continued to restructure its Cargo activity resulting in its gradual turnaround, in order to address the weak global trade and structural industry overcapacity, and to maximize its contribution to the Group.  During full year 2016, full-freighter capacity was reduced by 24% with a reduction of the number of full-freighters in operation to six, leading to a 4.6% decrease in total Cargo capacity measured in ATK. The ex-fuel unit cost was down 2.6% like-for-like as a result of the restructuring efforts, mainly driven by the 6.7% headcount reduction over the course of the year, while productivity measured in ATK per FTE increased by 2.3%. The losses on the full-freighters were further reduced by 14 million euros resulting in an operating loss of 28 million euros. It has been decided to change the Cargo reporting as per fiscal year 2017 based on contribution margin and to include it in the passenger network results. This change will be effective as from the Q1 2017 results presentation. In full year 2016, both third party revenues and the operating result further increased, strengthening the growth of the Maintenance business and securing its position as world leader in the airline MRO business. Third-party revenues amounted to 1,834 million euros, up by 16% driven by the contracts gained over the past few years. Over the period, the maintenance order book recorded a 6.0% increase to reach a year-end record of 8.9 billion dollars, including several new A350 and B787 support contracts, and securing future growth and its ambition of value creation. The operating margin was up by 0.3 points to 5.7% (operating result / total revenues) driven by the growth in the Engine and Component segments and the increase in contribution margin from the Airframe business. The accelerated ramp-up of Transavia is on track, resulting in a break-even operating result for the full year 2016. Transavia currently serves more than 100 destinations and carrying 13.3 million passengers. Capacity in France was up by 23%, whereas capacity in the Netherlands was up by 11%. Transavia is now the number one low cost carrier in the Netherlands and at Paris Orly, capturing the growth in the European leisure market. Due to the disciplined growth in investments, the free cash flow before disposals was positive at 347 million euros. Investment in the fleet continued to improve its competitiveness resulting in fuel efficiencies, lower maintenance costs and move up-market in terms of products and services. Net debt was further reduced thanks to free cash flow generation. As a result, net debt amounted to 3,655 million euros at 31 December 2016, versus 4,307 million euros at 31 December 2015, an improvement of 652 million euros despite currencies having a significant negative impact of 73 million euros. The Group sold a total of 4.95 millions of Amadeus shares representing 1.13% of the share capital and finalized the transaction to sell 49.99% of the Servair share capital and transfer its operational control to gategroup. 2016 is the fifth year of improvement in the adjusted net debt / EBITDAR ratio, which decreased to 2.9x at 31 December 2016 from 3.4x at 31 December 2015. During the course of the year the liquidity situation was further strengthened and finance costs further reduced. The Group continues to enjoy a good level of liquidity, with net cash of 4.3 billion euros at 31 December 2016, and undrawn credit lines of 1.8 billion euros. In 2016, the Group successfully placed a six-year bond for 400 million euros and an issue of ten-year senior notes for 145 million US dollars. The global context remains highly uncertain regarding the geopolitical and economic environment in which we operate, fuel prices and the ongoing overcapacity on several markets, resulting in pressure on unit revenues. However the January traffic statistics and forward bookings indicates a resilient start to the new year. In January 2017 the unit revenue was down by only 0.7% at constant currency for the passenger network and down only 0.6% at constant currency for Transavia. The Group is targeting a growth for the passenger group (Air France, KLM and Transavia) of between 3.0% and 3.5% measured in ASKs for 2017 in order to regain the offensive in long-haul and to improve the performance in medium-haul. To improve its competitiveness, the Group plans to act on all levels by pursuing and amplifying the initiatives already under way in terms of unit cost reduction. The unit cost reduction target for 2017 is in excess of 1.5% at constant currency, fuel price and pension related expenses. Based on the forward curve of 27 January 2017, the Full Year 2017 fuel bill is expected to increase by 100 million dollars compared to 2016 and to reach 4.9 billion euros[1], and the Full Year 2018 fuel bill is expected to increase to 5.0 billion euros[2]. Regarding the balance sheet, the Group is maintaining strict capex discipline, targeting positive free cash flow before disposals. The 2017 investment plan stands at between 1.7 billion euros and 2.2 billion euros. The Group is pursuing a further reduction in net debt, targeting an adjusted net debt to EBITDAR below 2.5x mid cycle by the end of 2020. We plan to present the comprehensive Trust Together vision at the forthcoming Investor Day, scheduled for 12 May 2017. The audit procedures for the consolidated accounts have taken place. The certification report will be published following the completion of the procedures necessary for the filing of the Registration Document. The results presentation is available at www.airfranceklm.com on 16 February 2017 from 7:15 am CET. An Analysts' Meeting hosted by Mr Janaillac (CEO) and Mr Gagey (CFO) will be held on 16 February 2017 at 08.30 CET at the Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel hotel, 18, avenue de Suffren (75015 Paris).

Plans call for the commercial airlock to be launched on a commercial cargo vessel and installed on the U.S. segment of the ISS in 2019. It enhances the US capability to place equipment and payloads outside and should triple the number of small satellites like CubeSats able to be deployed. The privately funded commercial airlock is being developed by Nanoracks in partnership with Boeing, which is the prime contractor for the space station. The airlock will be installed on an open port on the Tranquility module – that already is home to the seven windowed domed Cupola observation deck and the commercial BEAM expandable module built by Bigelow Aerospace. "We want to utilize the space station to expose the commercial sector to new and novel uses of space, ultimately creating a new economy in low-Earth orbit for scientific research, technology development and human and cargo transportation," said Sam Scimemi, director, ISS Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington, in a statement. "We hope this new airlock will allow a diverse community to experiment and develop opportunities in space for the commercial sector." The airlock will launch aboard one of NASA's commercial cargo suppliers in 2019. But the agency has not specified which contractor. The candidates include the SpaceX cargo Dragon, an enhanced ATK Cygnus or potentially the yet to fly SNC Dream Chaser. Boeing will supply the airlock's Passive Common Berthing Mechanism (CBM) hardware to connect it to the Tranquility module. The airlock will beef up the capability of transferring equipment, payloads and deployable satellites from inside the ISS to outside, significantly increasing the utilization of ISS, says Boeing. "The International Space Station allows NASA to conduct cutting-edge research and technology demonstrations for the next giant leap in human exploration and supports an emerging space economy in low-Earth orbit. Deployment of CubeSats and other small satellite payloads from the orbiting laboratory by commercial customers and NASA has increased in recent years. To support demand, NASA has accepted a proposal from NanoRacks to develop the first commercially funded airlock on the space station," says NASA. "The installation of NanoRacks' commercial airlock will help us keep up with demand," said Boeing International Space Station program manager Mark Mulqueen. "This is a big step in facilitating commercial business on the ISS." Right now the US uses the airlock on the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) to place payloads on the stations exterior as well as for small satellite deployments. But the demand is outstripping the JEM's availability. The Nanoracks airlock will be larger and more robust to take up the slack. NASA has stipulated that the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), NASA's manager of the U.S. National Laboratory on the space station, will be responsible for coordinating all payload deployments from the commercial airlock – NASA and non NASA. "We are entering a new chapter in the space station program where the private sector is taking on more responsibilities. We see this as only the beginning and are delighted to team with our friends at Boeing," said Jeffrey Manber, CEO of NanoRacks.
