SAS Group: “In September, improved load factor fully offset the yield fall of 5.0% resulting in a flat passenger RASK development. The yield and RASK in October is expected to continue the trend with relatively flat RASK development but continued yield pressure. A recovery has been noted on both intercontinental routes and certain short haul Business routes. SAS has as a result initiated yield enhancing measures to offset the negative yield development,” Source: Company statement, 05-Nov-2010.
