AUSTRIAN, BMI, LUFTHANSA AND SWISS, collectively the Lufthansa Passenger Airlines Group, has published it passengers' figures for August, demonstrating its different approach to a collective, rather than the Air France/KLM scenario, and that also proposed by BA and Iberia. Lufthansa itself achieved a load factor of 82.9% (down -0.6%). The use of larger aircraft meant that capacity went up by 5.7 %, whereas the number of flights only increased by 3.5%. SWISS carried more passengers this August than in the same period last year (+3.4%) giving a load factor of 86.3 % (-1.0). A similarly high passenger load factor of 83.3 % (+1.5 per person) was also reported by Austrian Airlines. Sales (+2.8%) were well above the slight expansion of capacity (+0.9%). Austrian Airlines carried 11.3 % more passengers than last year. Evidence of the sustainable restructuring of bmi can be seen in a sharp adjustment to capacity (-28.0%). This was accompanied by a load factor of 78.6 % (-2.5 per person). www.lufthansa.com
