Pinnacle Airlines Corporation (PNCL) has revealed traffic results for its Mesaba Aviation subsidiary for December 2010.
The carrier generated 280,108,000 revenue passenger miles (RPMs) in December, with available seat miles reaching 372,758,000. These figures created a load factor of 75.1% while carrying 466,354 passengers during the month.
Because PNCL only acquired Mesaba on 1 July 2010, it does not yet give figures for the respective month 12 months previously. Similarly the Corporation has released cumulative figures covering only July-December 2010. These show 1,763,373,000 RPMs, with ASMs at 2,308,420,000. The load factor for the six months was 76.4%, with the airline carrying 3,121,411 passengers during that period.
