GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes has announced its preliminary traffic figures for February 2010.
Revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) generated across the whole of Gol’s system totalled 2,523,100,000, a 46.9% increase over February 2009’s figure of 1,718,000,000. Available seat kilometres (ASKs) went up by 18.2% to 3,467,600,000 from 2,932,800,000 in the same period last year.
This resulted in a load factor of 72.8%, a considerable 14.2 percentage points up on the 58.6% achieved last February.
GOL noted that because of its fleet renewal allied to strong demand, aircraft utilisation exceeded 12.5 block hours/day, above the 11 block hours/day recorded in February 2009. These two factors thus helped increase GOL’s cost advantages in its operational markets.
