Great Lakes Aviation has reported its preliminary passenger traffic results for the month of May 2014.
Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) fell by 62.8% to 4,623,000 from May 2013’s figure of 12,435,000, as a result of a 68.6% cut in available seat miles to 9,933,000 from 31,605,000. The capacity cut came from the removal of seats from the airline’s Beech 1900s.
The load factor, though, went up by 7.1 percentage points to 46.5% from 39.4%. The number of passengers carried dropped to 16,133 from 42,390 in May 2013, a 61.9% decrease.
