Air Berlin: “The fleet utilisation continued to improve. In the first seven months, it rose 1.5 ppt to 78.35%. Hence, airberlin experienced an almost continuous increase in the utilisation rate since the beginning of the year. Given the capacity reduction of 7.6% and simultaneously increasing revenues, yield per passenger also continued to improve by 8.7% in the first half of 2012. Hence, yield per passenger has continuously improved for one year. Airberlin expects to continue this positive trend throughout the current year.” Source: Company statement, 14-Aug-2012.
