4 Further decline in cargo traffic Passenger business

As previously indicated, March 2009 saw a further marked deterioration in the operating environment.

Despite an almost 3% reduction in capacity, traffic declined by 9.4%, affecting all the networks. This

decline was accompanied by a significant deterioration in unit revenues. The load factor was down by

5.5 points to 75.5%. The group carried 5.6 million passengers (-9.8%).

- On the Americas network, traffic fell 6.9% with a 1.6% reduction in capacity. The load factor remained

high at 80.7% but this nevertheless amounted to a 4.6 point decline.

- On the Asia network, capacity was strongly reduced (-6.4%) but traffic fell by 10.7%. The load factor

therefore declined by 3.9 points, albeit remaining at the high level of 82.7%.

- Traffic on the Africa and Middle East network dropped 5.6% while capacity was virtually stable

(-0.1%). The load factor stood at 74.1% (-4.3 points).

- As in February, traffic on the Caribbean and Indian Ocean network was impacted by strike action in

the French Antilles, recording a drop of 16.9%. Capacity was reduced by 6.0%. The load factor

declined by 9.8 points to 75.2%.

- Conditions on the European network remain tough. Traffic fell by 9.8% while capacity was down by

1.0%, leading to a 6.1 point drop in the load factor to 62.9%.

Cargo business

Since January 1st 2009, the group has consolidated the cargo business of Martinair, the latter's main

activity. Including Martinair, traffic rose 1.3% for capacity up 12.3%. The load factor therefore declined by

6.8 points to 62.5%. Excluding Martinair, March 2009 traffic and capacity fell by 19.2% and 8.9%

respectively, leading to a 7.8 point deterioration in the load factor to 61.4%.
