Air France KLM Group reports March traffic figures

Air France KLM Group’s March traffic figures were strongly impacted by COVID-19, reflecting progressive extension of capacity reductions due to the global expansion of the virus. Special flights have been operated by Air France, KLM and Transavia to repatriate citizens to their home countries, in close cooperation with the governments of France and the Netherlands.

For April and May 2020 the Group foresees over 90% of planned capacity to be suspended as a consequence of the globally imposed travel restrictions to counter the spread of the COVID-19. Air France and KLM aim to continue serving key city pairs through a skeleton operation from their respective hubs. Beyond May 2020 the Group is currently unable to provide insight due to the high level of uncertainty over the duration of the crisis and continuously monitors the situation and accordingly evaluates if additional network adjustments are required.

Total group passenger activity (Air France, KLM and Transavia): total traffic in March declined -50.6%, while capacity was down -35.5% compared to March 2019. Load factor for March 2020 declined -20.5 points to 67.1%.
