Paris attacks cost Air France KLM €70 million in December

11 Jan 2016 by BusinessTraveller
Air France KLM says its December revenues were down around €70 million as a result of November’s terrorist attacks in Paris. The group says it carried 6.2 million passengers across its carriers Air France, KLM and Hop! during the month, down 1.1 per cent, with load factors on North American and Asian routes particularly affected. However it said that there was “significant easing during the last two weeks”, with booking trends in December “in line with a progressive recovery”. The group also said that once figures for its Dutch budget subsidiary Transavia were accounted, passenger numbers were "stable at 6.7 million". According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, France was the most visited country in the world in 2014, with just under 84 million international tourists. Figures for 2015 have not yet been released. airfrance.co.uk, klm.com Mark Caswell
