Porter Airlines has released traffic statistics for September 2010, indicating a year-over-year load factor improvement of 8.2 percentage points.
The September load factor of 55.8%, up from last September’s 47.6%, is based on a rise in revenue passenger miles (RPMs) of 79.9% to 53.8 million from 29.9 million and available seat miles going up by 53.5% to 96.4 million from 62.8 million.
The airline also flew approximately 56,000 more passengers in September compared to last year.
“Porter continues posting traffic figures with excellent gains across the board,” commented Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “We are especially pleased with numbers from recent months and anticipate a similarly strong conclusion to the calendar year.”
