GOL: “Since most trips in May are business-related and load factors are lower than in the rest of the year, yields maintained their upward trajectory, averaging BRL 21.50 cents, despite the seasonally weaker period. As a result, current yield levels are slightly above the Company’s guidance, reflecting the dynamic fare management,” Company statement. Source: GOL, 07-Jun-2010.
