The passenger load factor in the international segment decreased due to increased flight frequencies, primarily on European and US routes. In addition, the significant increase in the passenger load factor in February 2017 driven by the appreciation of the rouble created a high base factor, leading to a non-material normalisation of this indicator in the February 2018 reporting period. (In February 2017, the passenger load factor increased by 4.4 p.p. year-on-year for the Group and by 3.3 p.p. year-on-year for the Company).
