Total system traffic for the airline increased by 8.9% year-over-year to 5.507 billion revenue passenger miles, or RPMs, from 5.056 billion in October 2014.

The carrier’s capacity also rose, up 8%, to 6.645 billion available seat miles, or ASMs, from 6.159 billion in the same period last year.

Passenger load factor for the month was 82.8%, a year-over-year increase of 0.7 percentage points from 82.7% 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.
