Expedia Group's European customers will not have to pay Air France-KLM's GDS booking surcharge.

Air France-KLM started charging the 11 euro one-way fee at the beginning of April. 

According to Expedia Group, its leisure and corporate customers in all European markets -- including users of ebookers and Egencia, its business travel unit -- will not have to pay the surcharge on Air France, KLM or Hop! flights.

Expedia also said it, Air France-KLM and GDS partners "have committed to collaborate on the integration of new distribution capabilities," referring to IATA's NDC initiative.
