Air France-KLM: “In March, the passenger and cargo businesses each showed a further marked recovery both in terms of traffic and unit revenues. Even though unit revenues were significantly above last year’s level, including in premium class, they remained below the levels achieved in March 2008. This increase was more pronounced in economy class than in premium class. However, since January, comparables are benefiting from a favorable base,” Company statement.
