Copa Holdings: “For 2011, our guidance is for consolidated capacity growth of approximately 20% as a result of the full year effect of capacity added in 2010 and the introduction of ten additional 737-800 aircraft during 2011. Load factors are expected to come in below 2010 levels as a result of strong capacity expansion; while unit revenues (RASM) are expected to decrease approximately 4% mainly as a result increased length of haul and capacity expansion,” Company statement.
