Despite the decrease in operated flights (-3.3%), the Available Seat-Kilometers (ASK) increased by 12.8%, due to the replacement of AVRO jets (100 seats) by bigger Airbus aircraft (180 seats). The Seat Load Factor climbed from 79.7% in June last year to 81.8% in June 2018 (+2.2pp.). Thanks to its increased offer, Brussels Airlines was able to continue offering competitive fares and attract even more customers. This means, however, that the pressure on the ticket prices remains very high.
The Cargo Load Factor increased by 3.2 percentage points to an average of 68.4%, while the Revenue Ton-Kilometers (RTK) grew by 15.2%. The transported cargo volume amounted to 4,458 tons.
These statistics do not include the passengers on board of the many charter flights Brussels Airlines operates on behalf of tour operators.
