The new Load Factor level, together with the continuing upturn in yield, which increased by close to 15% in 2Q14, fueled PRASK, which climbed by approximately 27% in year-over-year, underlining the Company’s new level of execution.
Domestic Supply had 6.0% cut in 2Q14 and 2.2% cut in 6M14, reflecting the Company’s flexibility in adapting its domestic capacity and in line with its guidance of a reduction between 3% and 1%.
Domestic Demand increased by 3.5% in the quarter and 9.0% in the first six months. It is worth noting that June’s numbers reflect only part of the traffic related to the World Cup, which began on the 12th.
