There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Air France-KLM shares can be evaluated.

Air France-KLM's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Air France-KLM's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Air France-KLM shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Air France-KLM shares traded daily (recently around 99295.736434109).

In this case Air France-KLM's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Air France-KLM shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Air France-KLM shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Air France-KLM.
