The favourable trend in KLM’s traffic figures continued through to the second month of the fourth quarter as well. Including the month of November, KLM has welcomed a total of 31.5 million passengers on board during the past eleven months. We are already well on our way to our goal: 34 million KLM passengers in 2018.
The same trend was visible at Transavia where increased traffic measured in RPKs exceeded additional capacity, consequently boosting passenger load factor. Cargo load factor came under pressure last month at KLM Cargo as a result of a steep decline in traffic volumes (-2.3% RFTKs) in relation to capacity (-1.3% AFTKs). Consequently, cargo load factor declined by 0.8% points to 70%.
