Air France To Lose $55 Million Following Paris Terrorist Attack
France's robust tourism industry has taken a hit after the terrorist attack in Paris on Nov. 13. Air France expects a $55 million loss in revenue.

The chief financial officer for Air France told reporters in a phone conference that while traffic was "noticeably affected," bookings were back to normal for the new year.
While the immediate aftermath of the attacks hit Paris' robust tourism industry, a study done by World Travel and Tourism Council projects the dip in tourism won't last long.
The study found it takes about 13 months on average for tourism to recover, which is good news for France. The country welcomed over 83 million tourists last year.
