Air France KLM, which has been hunting for a new boss after costly strikes caused the departure of its previous chief executive, reported higher traffic figures for July from a year ago.

The airline said the group overall – including the Air France KLM, HOP and Transavia brands – carried 9.8 million passengers in July, up 1.7 percent from last year.

Overall traffic figures were up 1.9 percent, while the load factor – a measure of how full are an airline’s planes – edged up by 0.1 percentage point.

Air France KLM has been seeking a new boss to fill the gap left by the abrupt departure of Jean-Marc Janaillac in May, after staff rejected a pay proposal aimed at ending strikes.

Earlier this month, the company reported strong second-quarter sales and beat profit expectations in spite of the strikes that have so far cost it 335 million euros ($389.3 million).
