Jet Airways: “The capacity induction in the market has slowed down over the last few months, thereby helping the airlines to maintain higher yields. This along with the weak economic scenario has affected the traffic growth in the industry year-on-year. However, higher yields will help the industry to improve breakevens in short to medium term. Q4 passenger bookings show encouraging trends, however it will reflect some seasonality. Out international operations continue to achieve seat load factor of around 80%. Sale and lease back transactions and debt reduction programme continues to be on track.” Source: Company statement, 01-Feb-2013.
