PLAY carried 92,181 passengers in September, a decrease from August when the new airline carried 109,956 passengers. In September, the load factor was 81.5% compared to an 86.9% load factor in August and 87.9% in July. September is traditionally a challenging month in aviation with a drop in demand for holidays with a new school year and return to work so the market becomes more dependent on business traffic. However, PLAY states that its hub-and-spoke network “has had a very positive effect on the business, including aircraft utilization and decline in unit cost”. On-time performance (OTP) in September was 86%.
