Cimber Sterling: "The yield was 0.84 in July 2010, equivalent to an 11% increase compared with July 2009. This clearly shows that the summer of last year was a start-up phase, primarily for leisure traffic, for which pricing was not optimal ... The increase in the yield was achieved through much better pricing than in July 2009," Company Statement, 07-Sep-2010.
