UP, UP & AWAY: Record loads for WestJet

WestJet released its October 2012 traffic results, posting a record load factor of 81.2%. Revenue passenger miles (RPMs), or traffic, increased 5.9% year over year, and capacity, measured in available seat miles (ASMs), grew 0.9% over the same period. WestJet flew 113,000 more guests this October compared to October of last year. “We are very pleased with the October results which easily outpaced the previous October load factor record of 78.1% set in 2007,” said WestJet president and CEO Gregg Saretsky. “Forward bookings remain healthy and momentum continues at WestJet as this marks the fourth consecutive month in which we have achieved a record load factor.”
