Austrian Registered Q1 Passenger Upsurge

For Austrian Airlines, the first quarter (Q1) of this year marked a positive growth in passenger volume with some 2.2 million passengers carried between January and March, a 6.6 percent increase over the same period in 2016.

The airline also saw 3.3 percent year-on-year rise in available seat kilometers, to more than five billion during the period under review.

This growth is credited to the expanded bilateral flight traffic between Austria and Germany.

On the other hand, Q1 registered lower passenger load factor falling 2.6 percentage points to 68.5 percent over the corresponding period in 2016, along with a slight 0.5 percent decrease in revenue passenger kilometres, reaching the value of 3.5 billion.
