Fewer Empty Seats for Air Canada in February

February has seen fewer empty seats for Air Canada as compared to February of last year.  In contrast, WestJet reported the opposite trend, with more empty seats, despite the fact that it is prime vacationing time for university and college students.  Air Canada’s load factor rose from 75.9% in February, 2011 to 76.8% this February.  The airline has experienced greater passenger traffic, up 6.5%, at a time when there is an industry-wide increase in capacity of 5.3%.

Air Canada president and chief executive officer Calin Rovinescu said that their increase in all markets served by Air Canada was led by an increase of 10.7% in the US trans-border market.  WestJet president and CEO Gregg Saretsky said that they are happy with the airline’s strong load factor in February, in light of the increases in capacity.  The airline had a load factor of 82.7% this February, compared to 83.6% in February of last year.
