KLM traffic figures for July 2017: Upward trend continues


Following the positive traffic figures over the first six months of 2017, July similarly showed a continued increase in passenger numbers.

KLM welcomed 6.5% more passengers in July against a 2.4% increase in available capacity. This brings the load factor to a record high of 91.7%, an increase of 1.2 percentage points compared to the same month last year. At Transavia, capacity, passenger numbers, and occupancy rates also increased.


With these excellent traffic figures in the first half-year of 2017 behind us, July’s figures offer a promising start to the second half-year. We’re well on the way towards our combined goal of forty million passengers for KLM and Transavia in 2017
Pieter Elbers - KLM President & CEO

At KLM Cargo, the 2.3% drop in cargo transport was less strong than the 3.2% decrease in capacity, which increased the cargo load factor by 0.6 percentage point.
