KLM traffic figures for April 2019

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.


Following a decline in traffic figures during the first quarter, we saw an increase in April, boosted in part by good operational performance. The increase however is not as much as we would have liked
