TAM: “In 2011 the demand shall remain strong, driven by both passengers flying by business purposes, as for the leisure travellers. As a result of the combination of GDP growth and increase of new passengers, we estimate that the domestic market demand will grow between 15% and 18%. Aligned with the demand growth, we will increase our supply by growing our fleet by five aircraft, being two A330s, two A321s, two A319s and one A320, besides the redelivery of two ATR-42. We will also continue to optimise our costs through a healthy utilisation of our aircraft in the domestic market, growing our supply from 10% to 14%. In the international market we will grow 10% with the launch of two new frequencies or destinations,” Company statement. Source: TAM, 28-Feb-2011.
