Record October load factor for Air Canada

For the month of October, Air Canada reported a record system load factor of 82.9%, versus 79.4% in October 2011, an increase of 3.5 percentage points. System traffic increased 4.9% on a system-wide capacity increase of 0.4%. Air Canada reports traffic results on a system-wide basis, including regional airlines from which Air Canada purchases capacity.
“For the month of October, Air Canada reported a record load factor of 82.9%, an increase of 3.5 percentage points from the previous year,” said Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This record load factor for the month and strong traffic results overall underscore the effectiveness of our ongoing disciplined approach to managing capacity and our award-winning product that continues to earn customers’ loyalty. Led by increases in traffic on Atlantic, Pacific and domestic Canada routes of 7.1, 6.8 and 5.0%, respectively, system traffic grew 4.9% while overall capacity increased 0.4%. I thank our employees whose professionalism and dedication was brought to bear in taking care of our customers and transporting them safely to their destinations during the recent severe weather conditions in the U.S. northeast.”
