The latest two bouts of winter weather which have paralysed airports in the French capital will cost Air France-KLM 25-35 million euros, the airline's chief operating officer said on Tuesday.

"Everything that happened over the weekend represents a total of around 15 to 20 million euros," Pierre-Henri Gourgeon said on Europe 1 radio.

"We already had an earlier episode a little less severe a couple of weeks ago which accounted for 10 to 15 million euros," he added.

Gourgeon apologised to passengers for the disruptions and praised the airline's employees for doing their utmost to help clients in the difficult situations.

Weather-related delays and cancellations were still severely affecting Paris's two main airports on Monday evening.
