GOL’s May 2015 traffic figures show a load factor of 77%, an increase of 1.6 percentage points in comparison with the same period in 2014, with the total number of passengers for the month reaching 3.1 million.
The load factor across the first five months of 2015 and across the last 12 months also rose year-on-year to 78.7%, an increase of 2.2 percentage points and 4.3 percentage points respectively.
This is attributed to the fact that domestic demand for the month increased by 4.3% in comparison to May 2014, whilst capacity only rose 2.2%. Likewise, from January to May 2015 and in the last twelve months, domestic demand rose 4.7%, and 5.4% respectively compared with the same periods in 2014, whilst capacity only rose 1.8% during the first five months of this year and dropped 0.4% over the last twelve months across the same timeframes in 2014.
International demand in May this year grew 3.4%, but led to a load factor of 67.3%, which represents a decline of 0.7 percentage points versus May 2014.
Passenger figures for GOL stand at 16.5 million in the year to date and 40.1 million over the last twelve months.
