The decrease in the number of airberlin’s world-wide passengers by 6.7 percent to 2,141,898 passengers is likewise comparatively low when compared to the capacity-related reduction by 5.7 percent to 2,664,042 seats, and therefore also remained at a stable level.
airberlin’s passengers travelled a total of 3.513 billion kilometers (RPK) within airberlin’s global flight route network, which corresponds to a decrease of 6.8 percent in yearly comparison.
Stefan Pichler, CEO of airberlin, said: “Contrary to the general trend in the market, we have kept our capacity utilization virtually stable from last month. This development is a positive signal and shows that we are able to maintain our position in a volatile market environment marked by events such as those in Brussels.”
