Horizon Air releases August traffic data

Alaska Airlines subsidiary Horizon Air has carried 720,000 passengers in August 2015, a 4.8% increase in comparison to the 687,000 passengers the carrier dealt with during August 2014.
Likewise, traffic figures for the year-to-date show a 7.4% growth in passengers carried from 4,948,000 to 5,314,000 year-over-year.
However, Horizon Air’s 2.9% increase in revenue passenger miles (RPMs) for August 2015 was offset by a 3.5% increase in available seat miles (ASMs) against the same period last year, resulting in a load factor decrease of 0.5 percentage points from 82.3% to 81.8%.
Where the year-to-date figures are concerned, the RPMs have risen by 6% from 1,478,000 to 1,566,000 in comparison to a 5% ASM increase – from 1,852,000 to 1,944,000 – meaning the airline’s load factor has actually increased by 0.8 percentage points in comparison to the figures for the year-to-date in August 2014.
Elsewhere, the airline’s on-time arrivals have decreased from 88.4% in August 2014 to 73.4% in August 2015, which is a drop of 15 percentage points. The year-to-date figures are less drastic, having only decreased 3.7 percentage points from 88.6% to 84.9%.
