Booking trends in December, however, “were in line with a progressive recovery," the company said in a press release.
Total traffic in December for Air France, KLM and low-cost subsidiaries HOP! and Transavia was 6.7 million passengers, "stable" over the previous month, it said. Seat occupancy was 82.9 per cent, a fall of 0.2 per cent.
The Bank of France said last month that the attacks, which killed 130 people and wounded many more, cost France’s economy about 500 million euros, reducing the rate of growth by about a quarter. Those losses were mainly on the tourism sector.
Hotels, restaurants and leisure activities were "notably weakened in connection with the 13 November attacks" which targeted a music venue, cafés and restaurants, the bank had said in a statement.
Air France has been plagued in recent months by strikes and protests as the troubled French flag-carrier faces a major job-shedding programme. Trade unions have called for work stoppages this month to protect jobs, as well as to call for the end of disciplinary procedures for two pilots accused of involvement in an October protest in which managers had their shirts torn off.
