Air France KLM's July Traffic Figures Rise From Last Year

Air France KLM has reported higher traffic figures for July from a year ago.

The airline said the group overall - including the Air France KLM, HOP and Transavia brands - carried 9.8 million passengers in July, up 1.7% from last year.

Overall traffic figures were up 1.9%, while the load factor - a measure of how full are an airline's planes - edged up by 0.1 percentage point.

Strong Sales

Earlier this month, the company reported strong second-quarter sales and beat profit expectations in spite of the strikes that have so far cost it €335 million.

The French government has a stake of about 14% in Air France-KLM, while Delta Airlines and China Eastern Airlines each hold 8.8%.
