Tourists are coming back to France after recovering from terror attacks of 2016

Published on : Monday, July 10, 2017

FranceThe Air France-KLM Group has said that summer bookings are on the rise, and tourists from Asia and the US are coming back to France after staying away in 2016, due to a series of Islamist terror attacks.

 
The CEO of Air France-KLM Jean-Marc Janaillac said in an interview, “The second quarter is good and the bookings for this summer are also quite positive compared to last year,” and mentioned the increase in bookings as “healthy” while declining to give further details.

 
Air France-KLM is only just recovering from the collapse in travel that followed terrorist attacks on cities including Paris and Nice over the past two years. “We suffered from terrorist attacks, especially in 2016, but we have recovered this year. Visitors from the States and China and Japan are coming back,” Mr Janaillac said.

 

“This year we came back to the situation of two years ago and a bit more. We are quite hopeful that during the next year we are going to keep on increasing our visitors from overseas.”

 
Air France-KLM shares have more than doubled this year.
