Volaris passenger numbers up for August

The ultra-low-cost airline serving Mexico, Central America and the US, Volaris has reported its latest figures both for the Month of August and the year to date. 

Volaris transported a total of 1.5 million passengers during August, which is a 10.2% more than it did in the same month last year. The carrier achieved an 80.3% load factor over the month, down by around 5.1% on last years number.  However,  Revenue Passenger Miles (RPMs), in August 2018 increased 7.8% year over year. 

 Volaris' Chief Executive Officer, Enrique Beltranena, commented: "International load factors were high on the northbound but low on the southbound flights, responding to the seasonality of the VFR traffic. Nevertheless, quarter-to-date, we are observing unit revenue trends in line with last year."

The following table summarizes Volaris traffic results for the month and year-to-date.
