On domestic routes, Group passengers carried and RPKs grew by 2.5% and 6.2% year-on-year, respectively.ASKs remained flat year-on-year. Company passengers carried and RPKs on domestic routes were up 7.9% and 3.5% year-on-year, respectively. ASKs declined by 1.4%. The decrease in Company’s ASKs was due to postponement of aircraft deliveries required for summer schedule operations and respective adjustments in the flight program.

On international routes, Group passengers carried rose 26.8% year-on-year while Group RPKs were up 33.4% year-on-year. ASKs for the period increased 26.5% year-on-year. Passengers carried on Aeroflot airline international flights increased 15.9%, RPKs increased by 19.8% and ASKs rose 15.8%. International traffic growth was supported by a decline in competition as several foreign carriers reduced flight frequencies to Russia, Aeroflot airline’s international transit traffic through its Sheremetyevo hub and Transaero’s exit from the market, which triggered a reallocation of domestic and international routes amongst market players.

As a result of these factors, the passenger load factor increased by 4.6 p.p. year-on-year to 85.9% for the Group and by 3.1 p.p. year-on-year to 85.4% for the Company.
