Pinnacle Airlines Corporation (PNCL) has released August 2010 capacity and operational results for its Mesaba Aviation subsidiary.
As the carrier only became part of PNCL on 1 July, no comparable 2009 figures are given. During August 2010, however, Mesaba recorded 312,384,000 revenue passenger miles (RPMs) and 400,895,000 available seat miles.
These figures resulted in a load factor of 77.9%, with 575,805 passengers being carried in August. The carrier flew 23,341 block hours with its fleet of 19 CRJ200s, 41 CRJ900s and 32 Saab 340s.
