Delta Air Lines March System Traffic Rises 2.0% - Quick Facts

Delta Air Lines (DAL, DALRQ.PK) said its system traffic for the month of March increased 2.0 percent on a 3.4 percent decline in capacity.

Total System traffic was up to 16.46 billion revenue passenger miles from 16.14 billion revenue passenger miles a year ago. The airline's capacity dropped to 19.57 billion available seat miles from 20.26 billion available seat miles in the same period last year.

Load Factor rose 4.4 points to 84.1% from 79.7% a year earlier.

Monthly consolidated passenger unit revenue jumped 13.0 percent from the prior year period, as a result of strong demand, particularly from corporate customers, which generated improvements in yield and load factor across all regions. Revenue for the month exceeded prior expectations on improved close-in bookings and better Pacific performance.
