Air France KLM reported higher passenger traffic for June despite ongoing industrial unrest.

The carrier has been battling disruption caused by strikes and uncertainty over its management structure.

However, overall group carryings rose by 3.7% to 9.3 million passengers last month over June 2017.

Air France, KLM and Hop contributed 7.7 million of the total – growth of 2.9% year-on-year – while Transavia grew carryings by 8.1% to 1.6 million.

The overall load factor rose to 89.3% in June from 87.7% last year, it said.

The group is still seeking a new chief after the abrupt departure of Jean-Marc Janaillac in May following staff rejected a revised pay deal.
