Jet Airways: “Domestic air traffic appears to have started reviving in the last few months based on recent traffic data. This, along with the peak season impact in quarter 3, will help airlines to improve yields, which otherwise had been severely impacted due to the recession and lean season impact in Quarter 2. Over the last few weeks, airlines have started raising fares and these increases have not shown any negative impact on traffic. On the International routes, we were able to achieve seat factor of close to 80% and are close to breakeven despite difficult market conditions. We do expect yield improvements with the peak season as well as premium demand revival in the next few quarters whilst our focus will continue to be on maximizing revenues through higher seat factor levels,” Company statement.
