Vueling ups February load factor
By tailoring its capacity, Vueling Airlines increased its February load factor by 2.4 percentage points, growing from 64.6% in 2008 to 67.0% in 2009.
Traffic, in revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs), dropped by 24.3% to 306 million in February 2009 from 404 million last February, while capacity, measured in available seat kilometres (ASKs), fell by 27.0% from 626 million to 457 million.
Vueling operated an average of 16 aircraft in February, down by almost a third on a year earlier, concentrating them on serving the most profitable routes.
Revenue per flight optimisation remained Vueling’s main commercial goal. In that regard February 2009’s revenue per flight level was once again above that obtained in the same month last year.
