Azul, the largest airline in Brazil by number of cities served and flight departures, announces today its preliminary traffic results for September 2019.
Consolidated passenger traffic (RPKs) increased 31.0% compared to September 2018 on a capacity increase (ASKs) of 30.8%, resulting in a load factor of 83.3%, an increase of 0.1 percentage points compared to the same period in 2018. Domestic load factor was 82.1% and international load factor was 87.7%.
In the third quarter, consolidated RPKs increased 30.7% on a capacity increase of 29.3% year over year.
"In September we continued to demonstrate our ability to match capacity with demand by growing more than 30% while maintaining high load factors. We received our 32nd A320neo and are very excited with the delivery of our first E915-E2, both of which are key drivers of our margin expansion going forward," says John Rodgerson, Azul's CEO.
