Air France-KLM: “Jan-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. Unit revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK) ex-currency progressed compared with Jan-2012.” Source: Company statement, 07-Feb-2013.
