Iberia: “The load factor improved by 3.0 points reaching 79.0%, a record level for December in Iberia’s history. With a reduction of 6.4% in capacity, similar to that registered in the last three months, traffic decreased by 2.7%, thanks to the positive evolution of demand on intercontinental flights. Unit revenues also recovered, although standing below last year’s figures,” Company statement. Source: Iberia, 14-Jan-2010.
