Air Canada reports record load factor for April
May 7, 2008

Air Canada has reported a record load factor and increased passenger traffic for April, with the mainline carrier flying 83.5 per cent full during the month. The mainline carrier flew one per cent more revenue passenger miles (RPMs) in April 2008 than in April 2007, according to preliminary traffic figures. Capacity increased by 0.6 per cent, resulting in a record load factor of 83.5 per cent for the month compared to 83.2 per cent in April 2007 – an increase of 0.3 percentage points. Jazz, from which Air Canada purchases regional capacity, also flew with fuller planes during the month. Its load factor was 74.9 per cent, compared to 74 per cent in April 2007. During April, Jazz flew 1.1 per cent fewer RPMs than in April 2007 and capacity decreased by 2.3 per cent. On a consolidated basis, Air Canada and Jazz together reported a record load factor of 82.7 per cent for April, versus 82.3 per cent a year earlier. For the month, system traffic on a consolidated basis rose 0.8 per cent on a capacity increase of 0.4 per cent. “Air Canada carried more traffic and achieved a record load factor in April even though the month did not include the normal traffic boost from the Easter holiday this year. These results show we continued to attract new customers while managing our capacity well,” said Air Canada president Montie Brewer.
