July 15, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS)1 transported 8,048,233 passengers in the first six months of 2017, some 4.4% more than it had in the same period last year. The increase was achieved even though the 69,089 flights operated during the period were a 3.8% decline on January to June 2016.

First-half systemwide capacity was raised 4.9% in available seat-kilometre (ASK) terms. The increase was fully absorbed by traffic volume growth, which amounted to 7.7% in revenue passenger-kilometre (RPK) terms. Systemwide seat load factor for the first-half period improved accordingly, rising 2.1 percentage points to 80.6%.

For June 2017 SWISS carried 1,476,963 passengers, a 3.8% improvement on the same month last year. The 11,878 flights operated represented a 5.0% decline. ASK capacity for the month was increased by 3.8%, while RPK traffic volume rose 5.8%. Systemwide seat load factor improved 1.6 percentage points to 84.8%.
