ABEAR president Eduardo Sanovicz commented, "These numbers are within the expected [range] and reflect both the process of adjustment of supply, initiated by airlines in 2012 and strengthened in 2013 as a way of coping with rising operating costs." Mr Sanovicz said demand behaviour "is comparatively less heated than it has been in recent years." [more - original PR - Portuguese]
