Air France KLM - December 2015 Traffic Results

Summary
  • Passenger network: strict capacity discipline, increase in traffic and stable load factor.
  • Progressive recovery following the 13th November Paris terrorist attacks

Traffic highlights

The negative impact of the Paris attacks on December revenues is estimated to be around 70 million euros, with significant easing during the last two weeks. Booking trends in December were in line with a progressive recovery.
