Great Lakes Aviation has reported preliminary passenger traffic results for the month of October 2014, which still reflect the airline’s decision earlier this year – related to pilot rules – to remove 10 seats from each of its Beech 1900Ds.
Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) in October totalled 3,964,000, a decrease of 64.5% compared with the 11,177,000 generated in October 2013. Available seat miles (ASMs) were cut by 67.3% to 8,823,000 from 26,959,000 for the respective periods.
The load factor in October 2014 was 44.9%, up by 3.4 percentage points from the 41.5% last October. Great Lakes carried 13,978 passengers compared with 39,161 carried in October 2013, a 64.3% decrease.
