Traffic highlights

November traffic to and from Paris was significantly impacted by the 13th November Paris terrorist attacks.

Passenger network load factor was down 0.9 points in the period from 14th to 30th November, while it was up 2.7 points in the period from 1st to 13th November. Transavia activity was affected to a lesser extent. Cargo activity was primarily impacted by the additional security measures implemented at Paris-CDG airport following the attacks.

The negative impact of the Paris attacks on total November revenues is estimated to be around 50 million euros. Current booking trends are in line with a progressive recovery including a very limited impact on volumes after the end of December 2015.
