DSC_0910Air Canada announced operational results for June 2015.  The airline reported a year-over-year increase in both traffic and capacity, with a lower load factor for the month.

Total system traffic for the carrier increased by 10.1% year-over-year to 6.196 billion revenue passenger miles, or RPMs, from 5.63 billion in June 2014.

The carrier’s capacity also rose, up 10.5%, to 7.258 billion available seat miles, or ASMs, from 6.57 billion in the same period last year.

Passenger load factor for the month was 85.4%, a year-over-year decrease of 0.3 percentage points from 85.7% 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.
