LATAM: “The company expects passenger ASK growth for full year 2013 for LATAM Airlines Group to be approximately 2% to 4%. TAM’s domestic passenger ASKs in the Brazilian market are expected to decrease by approximately 5% to 7% during 2013. Regarding cargo operations, LATAM expects cargo ATK growth between 2% and 4% for full year 2013, mainly driven by the incorporation of two new Boeing 777 freighters in September and October 2012, as well as additional belly capacity.” Source: Company statement, 15-May-2013.
