Porter Airlines releases February statistics Porter Airlines

Porter Airlines reported a load factor of 54 per cent in February. This represents a decline of 2.1 points compared to 2012.

 

Figures for the month show 104.9 million Available Seat Miles (ASMs) and 56.6 million Revenue Passenger Miles (RPMs), compared to 110.4 million ASMs and 61.9 million RPMs last year.

 

“The capacity difference versus last year is attributed almost entirely to the leap year in 2012 providing an extra day of flying,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Revenue per ASM is holding up nicely compared to last year despite significant capacity increases by other carriers on certain routes.”
