WestJet reports record April traffic

During April 2019, WestJet reported a record load factor of 87.7%, an increase of 1.7 percentage points year over year. Revenue passenger miles (RPMs), or traffic, increased 7.0% year over year, while capacity, measured in available seat miles (ASMs), grew 4.9% over the same period. WestJet welcomed an additional 99,000 guests in April, a year over year increase of 4.7%.

“In April, all preparatory work that went into two major initiatives culminated in the launch of our first transatlantic flight operated on our new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft and the opening of our new wide-body hangar in Calgary. Both major programs launched on time, on budget and to scope,” said WestJet President and CEO Ed Sims. “Another testament to the execution and delivery capability we have built throughout our organization.”
