Azul releases figures for May

 Azul the largest airline in Brazil by the number of cities served, announces today its preliminary traffic results for May 2018.

Consolidated passenger traffic (RPKs) increased 14.0% compared to May 2017 on a capacity increase (ASKs) of 13.5%. As a result, load factor was 80.1%, 0.3 percentage points higher than in the same period last year.



Domestic passenger traffic increased 1.5% on a 2.6% increase in capacity resulting in a load factor of 77.1%, 0.9 percentage points lower than May 2017. This reduction was due to the truck driver's strike in Brazil, which resulted in a higher number of reservations cancelled and an increase in no-show rates between May 24th and May 31st".

Year to date Azul continues to be the most on-time airline in Brazil with 91% of flights departing within 15 minutes of departure time, according to FlightStats.
