Air-France KLM passenger load factor touches 87.1%

Passenger load is a technical term in aviation parlance that equates to passenger density per flight. A higher figure denotes increased efficiency.

On Friday, Air France KLM, which has in the past been the subject of political tensions between France and the Netherlands, posted a rise in passenger footfalls in comparison to the previous year.

In February, Air France KLM carried 7 million passengers, a rise of 4.1% from a year-ago.

In a statement, Air France KLM said, s February passenger load factor – a measure of how packed an airline’s planes are – increased by 0.2 percentage points to 87.1% from last year.

Incidentally, in February, Netherlands had quietly amassed a 14% stake in Air France KLM, almost matching the 14.3% stake held by the French government.

Netherland’s move had triggered a diplomatic spat between the two; since then both countries have down played the matter.
