Low-cost wing helps Air France-KLM

Recent weeklong strike hits group’s traffic results
The recent weeklong strike at Air France cost Air France-KLM around €90 million, the Franco-Dutch airline group says.
Passenger traffic in July fell 0.6% compared to the same month a year ago, to 7.5 million passengers, according to data released today. The strike by Air France flight attendants took place between July 27 and August 2.
However, strong activity at the group’s low-cost unit offset the decline. Transavia saw a 23% rise in traffic during July to 1.32 million passengers. Including Transavia, the group’s overall passenger traffic rose 2.9% to 9.16 million passengers.
