Total system traffic for the airline increased by 10.1% year-over-year to 6.104 billion revenue passenger miles, or RPMs, from 5.545 billion in September 2014.

The carrier’s capacity also rose, up 11.5%, to 7.301 billion available seat miles, or ASMs, from 6.546 billion in the same period last year.

Passenger load factor for the month was 83.6%, a year-over-year decrease of 1.1 percentage points from 84.7% last year.

Air Canada reports traffic results on a system-wide basis and does not break down its results by subsidiary.  The final numbers include data from the airline’s subsidiary, Air Canada rouge, which first began operations in July 2013, as well as regional airlines from which Air Canada purchases capacity.
