Air France KLM: January 2013 Traffic

Published on : Thursday, February 7, 2013

January 2013 was perturbed by adverse weather conditions at CDG which led Air France, at the request of the authorities, to reduce capacity by 40% during two days. This reduction in capacity especially weighed on European traffic. KLM also experienced significant snowfalls at Schiphol. As a consequence of these adjustments, capacity was up 0.4% while traffic was stable. The load factor stood at 81.4% (-0.3 points). The number of passengers amounted to 5.5 millions (-3.8%). Unit revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK) ex-currency progressed compared with January 2012.

– On the Americas network traffic and capacity declined by 0.7% and 1.2% respectively. The load
factor stood at 87.4% (+0.5 points) underpinned by Latin America.

 The Asia network was dynamic with a 5.0% rise in traffic. Capacity was up 6.9%, giving a load factor
of 83.8%, down 1.5 points.

 The Africa and Middle East network recorded a 1.5% increase in traffic for capacity up by 1.8%. The
load factor was virtually stable at 80.2% (-0.2 points).

 On the Caribbean and Indian Ocean network capacity was down 4.1% and traffic by 2.8%. The load
factor gained 1.2 points to 86.7%.
