KLM’s traffic figures for the month of April reflect a slight increase. KLM welcomed 1.8% more passengers on board in April compared to the same month last year.
Passenger load factor remained largely stable in comparison with the same month last year against a marginal traffic increase of 1.2% (expressed in revenue passenger kilometres or RPKs), coupled with marginally increased capacity of 1.2% (expressed in available seat kilometres or ASKs). Passenger growth was especially visible on routes to our destinations in Asia.
On the April figures, KLM president and CEO Pieter Elbers said: “Following a decline in traffic figures during the first quarter, we saw an increase in April, but not as much as we would have liked.”
