PARIS, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Air France (AIRF.PA) on Wednesday announced it would raise salaries for all staff categories by a total of 5% in anticipation of wage talks due next year, and make a 1,000 euro bonus payment to its workforce.

The measures are part of the company's efforts to help workers cope with high inflation, the airline said in a statement.

Wages will be lifted by 2% in November, the company said, with a further 2.5% increase due in February, 2023 and an additional 0.5% increase will be proposed at wage talks in May.
