LAN: “Considering current market conditions, the Company maintains its expectations for passenger ASK growth of approximately 10% in 2010 and between 15% and 17% for 2011, mainly driven by the net delivery of 18 passenger aircraft. LAN Cargo currently expects approximately 20% growth in cargo capacity for 2010, mainly driven by higher utilization of the freighter fleet, especially the 2 Boeing 777-200 freighters received in the first half 2009. For 2011, LAN Cargo expects between 13% and 15% growth in capacity, mainly driven by the delivery between December 2010 and February 2011 of 3 Boeing 767F freighters,” Company statement.
