SAS Monthly Traffic Data - May 1999

May in brief Passenger traffic (RPK) showed an overall increase of 15,5% in May 1999 v s. May 1998. Overall capacity (ASK) increased by 19% and passenger load factor fell by 2.1 p.u. Approximately 15% of capacity increase is explained by last year's general labor conflict in Denmark the first seven days of May 1998. Taking last years disruptions into consideration, passenger mix continued to develop negatively. The outlook for the development of passenger mix remains uncertain, putting yields under pressure. *Total passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 15,5% in May 1999 vs. 1998. *The number of passengers increased by 11,5%. *Business Class traffic was up 4.0% and Economy Class was up 21,4%. *The passenger load factor decreased from 66.0% to 63.9%. ------------------------------------------------------------ Please visit for further information The following files are available for download: The full report The full report
