Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 6 October 2009

Air Canada has reported a September 2009 system load factor of 79.7% on a consolidated basis with Jazz (from which Air Canada purchases regional capacity), versus 79.9% in September 2008, a decrease of 0.2 percentage points. System traffic decreased 2.1% on a capacity reduction of 2% system wide.

"In September, Air Canada recorded a load factor of 79.7% on a consolidated basis with Jazz," said Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"This result is in line with last year's record-setting load factor for the month and is attributable to our on-going disciplined approach to capacity management. I am particularly pleased to report a strong performance of 83.5% load factor for the third quarter, an increase of one percentage point from the previous year, despite the impact of the weak economy on the industry overall," Mr Rovinescu added.

"I commend our employees who exceeded both Customer Satisfaction and On-Time Performance objectives for the month, achieving on-time arrivals performance of 88%, a one percentage point improvement over the same month a year ago."
