Air France-KLM: “The group carried 5.96 million passengers. Unit revenues held up well on the Asia excluding Japan, Latin America and Caribbean and Indian Ocean networks, but were insufficient to offset the decline in troubled regions. Overall therefore, unit revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK), excluding currency, was down relative to March 2010 which benefited from an uptick in both traffic and revenues as well as the positioning of Easter at the very beginning of April. However, forward bookings for the summer season remain of high quality, both in terms of volume and revenues,” Source: Company statement, 08-Apr-2011.
