Great Lakes Aviation has reported its preliminary passenger traffic results for February 2015, with the figures still affected by the decision in Spring 2014 to reduce the number fo seats in the airline’s Beech 1900Ds.
Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) fell by 57.1% to 2,289,000 from 5,331,000, with available seat miles (ASMs) cut by 51.0% to 6,605,000 from 13,472,000, reflecting that seat removal action.
The load factor in February 2015 was 34.7%, compared with last February’s 39.6%, a drop of 4.9 percentage points. The company carried 8,111 passengers in February, which was 55.5% fewer than the 18,211 carried in the same month last year.
