Air France-KLM: “Unit revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK), excluding currency, rose strongly compared with June 2009, driven by both the economy and premium classes. In long-haul the rise was especially marked on the Asia, North America and Latin America networks. In medium-haul, the Paris-Europe routes continued to benefit from the launch of the ‘Premium eco’ product, adapted to the business traveller, and which has enjoyed a positive response from customers. Cargo traffic rose 0.8% with capacity down 2.8%. The load factor gained 2.4 points to 67.7%. Unit revenue per available ton kilometre (RATK) was up strongly compared with June 2009.” Company statement. Source: Air France-KLM, 07-Jul-2010.
