US Airways has reported February 2010 combined traffic figures for Piedmont Airlines and PSA Airlines, its two wholly-owned subsidiaries which operate under the US Airways Express brand.
The airlines generated 137,840,000 revenue passenger miles (RPMs), a 7.1% decrease compared with last February’s 148,355,000. Available seat miles were also down, by 13.0%, to 209,951,000 from 241,407,000 for the respective periods.
With ASMs falling more than RPMs, the load factor went up by 4.2 percentage points in February to 65.7% from 61.5% a year ago. Passenger numbers were also down though at 499,594 from last February’s figure of 554,389, a 9.9% decrease.
