Record profit-sharing amount for KLM staff


KLM has completed a record year, as can be seen in its staff profit-sharing scheme. As a result of the strong annual figures, presented last Friday, profit-sharing was higher than ever. A total of EUR 170 million gross was paid out to the staff. This is the third consecutive year that KLM staff are sharing the profit. A total of no less than 14.1% of twelve monthly salaries were paid out under the profit-sharing scheme. The improved profit-sharing scheme is part of the collective labour agreement made in 2015.

“In recent years, we have taken numerous measures to make KLM fit and healthy, and we are seeing this reflected in the annual results. All of our staff have worked incredibly hard this last year and have contributed to KLM’s restoration. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved together. So it is great to see that KLM staff can share in it.”
KLM President & CEO Pieter Elbers
