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
