Key figures for 2018

Trends and comments on the key figures
2018 saw major gains in staff numbers, resulting in a better contributor/ pensioner ratio, with an even bigger growth in contributions. 2019 will see all of these indicators continue to rise considerably.

Please be aware that the average pension that appears in the key figures often rises more slowly than the pension variation index (“IVP”). This is due to a structural effect, as the proportion of commercial air crew members is increasing. As an example, between 2012 and 2018, the number of retired commercial air crew members increased by 20% while the number of retired technical air crew members only went up by 8.4%.
