Cimber Sterling: “The yield was DKK0.90 in May 2010, equivalent to a 4% decline compared with May 2009. A stabilisation was seen relative to the performance in previous months, and the periods have become more readily comparable. The yield for the domestic segment dropped by 24% in May-2010, which was partly offset by a 6 ppt increase in the load factor from 59% to 65%. The regional segment recorded a 5% drop in yield. Conversely, the yield for the leisure segment increased by 11%, whereas the load factor dropped by 6 ppts. This decline was primarily attributable to the start-up of leisure routes which have higher load factors on the first outbound flights than on the first return flights,” Company statement.
