KLM Royal Dutch Airlines saw a 2% decrease in revenue passenger kilometre and a 3% shrink in capacity.
KLM Cargo saw a 6% growth in revenue cargo tonne kilometres but a 1% decrease in capacity.
KLM Passenger load factor was up 0.6% to 84.2%, while KLM Cargo load factor increased 4.9% to 69.5%.
Overall load factor was 79.3% - up 2.5%.
"In KLM's opinion, the traffic results emphasise the company's ability to effectively gear capacity levels to traffic levels," said the Airline.
"Market conditions are continuing to recover despite global economic headwinds," said Richard Brakenhoff, analyst at Dexia Securities. "The business class load factor improved again, which in our view will result in a favourable (average fare) yield development."
