Jun 03, 2010

U.S. Airways Group Inc. reported an 1.8 percent year-over-year increase in traffic last month and passenger traffic was up close to 1 percent. Almost 4.46 million passengers were on US Airways flights during May, a 0.9 percent increase compared to 4.42 million in May 2009, the airline said Thursday.

The airline, one of six carriers at Piedmont Triad International Airport, flew 5.2 billion revenue passenger miles last month, up 1.8 percent from May 2009. Revenue passenger miles are a key airline industry gauge of a carrier’s traffic.

The carrier’s passenger-load factor, or percentage of filled seats, was a record 82.9 percent, the airline said.

Capacity was up 1.7 percent year-over-year to 6.3 billion available seat miles.

Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways operates 3,000 flights per day to 190 destinations in the Americas and Europe.
