SAS Group reports (08-Mar-2013) the following traffic highlights in Feb-2013:

  • Passenger numbers: 2.0 million, -2.6% year-on-year;
  • Passenger load factor: 66.4%, -0.4 ppt;

SAS: “Currency adjusted yield (Scandinavian Airlines) in Jan-2013 was up 3.7% versus previous year and RASK was up 5%, slightly higher than expected. For Feb-2013 the yield (change vs last year) is expected to be inline with previous year but the change in RASK is expected to be lower due to lower load factors.” Source: Company statement, 08-Mar-2013.
