The North American capacity increased by 31.8% following the opening of the new Los Angeles route in March and added frequencies to San Francisco.  

In European traffic, the ASKs were up by 4.3%. The growth derived from additional seating capacity in some of the existing narrow-body aircraft and the changes in route network.
