Vueling increases January load factor by 5.1 points
Vueling Airlines reports that it increased its January load factor by 5.1 percentage points, growing from 58.9% in 2008 to 64.0% in 2009.
The figure comes from a tailoring of capacity, with available seat kilometres (ASKs) being reduced by 31.1% from 732 million in January 2008 to 504 million this January. Revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) in January 2009 totalled 323 million, 25.1% down on last January's figure of 431 million
During January 2009, in keeping with its improvement plan as it heads towards a merger with Clickair, Vueling operated a fleet of 16 aircraft, eight fewer than in January last year, concentrating on serving its most profitable routes. Revenue per flight optimisation remains Vueling’s main commercial goal, the airline says, adding that January 2009’s revenue per flight figure was above that obtained in the same month last year.
