Transavia also achieved significant passenger growth in 2017 against a higher load.
In 2017, KLM was able to expand its network by 15 destinations to meet its customers’ needs. This brought the total number of KLM destinations to 165 worldwide. The KLM Group as a whole welcomed 41.6 million passengers aboard its flights in 2017, significantly exceeding the target of 40 million. This is a marvellous milestone and I am sincerely grateful to our passengers and our customers.
At KLM Cargo, traffic fell by 0.6% over 2017, against a 0.2% decline in capacity. This caused the load factor to drop 0.3%pts. However, a positive trend has been seen in recent months and a degree of recovery in the cargo market.
