WestJet today announced November 2015 traffic results with a load factor of 78.6 per cent, a decrease of 1.9 percentage points year over year. Revenue passenger miles (RPMs), or traffic, decreased 2.7 per cent year over year, and capacity, measured in available seat miles (ASMs), declined 0.3 per cent over the same period. The airline flew 1.5 million guests in November, approximately flat with the prior year, and achieved an on-time performance rate of 89.8 per cent in the month, an improvement of 13.5 percentage points year over year.
“While loads across much of our network were generally in line with very strong prior year performance, softness in certain southern and Alberta markets resulted in a modest system load factor decline,” said WestJet President and CEO Gregg Saretsky. “With our busy holiday season approaching, I want to thank our more than 11,000 WestJetters for their continued dedication to safely providing our guests with WestJet’s award-winning brand of friendly caring service.”
